Flanagan Foodservice Partners with Ocean Wise

October 2013



Offering a wide variety of sustainable seafood choices, Flanagan Foodservice, in conjunction with Vancouver Aquarium, now offers customers ocean-friendly seafood choices that help ensure the health of our oceans.


"Ocean Wise is growing rapidly across Canada. Partners like Flanagan Foodservice are helping consumers make easy choices when it comes to identifying ocean-friendly seafood options," said Mike McDermid, Ocean Wise Partner Relations Manager, Vancouver Aquarium. "Consumers trust and demand Ocean Wise products and we encourage them to purchase sustainable seafood at Flanagan's."


Sustainable seafood is, very simply, seafood caught in a way that ensures the health of our oceans for generations to come. Flanagan Foodservice has 3 distribution centres in Ontario where customers can now make Ocean Wise seafood choices. With the demand for Ocean Wise products rising, Flanagan Foodservice joins over 3,100 Ocean Wise partner locations across Canada who are working together to help protect the world's oceans by encouraging consumers to choose sustainable seafood products.


"We are extremely proud to be an Ocean Wise partner," said Brian Hopkins, VP of Sales and Marketing. "We encourage our customers to make ocean-friendly seafood part of their menu simply by choosing Ocean Wise recommended products."
