The Food & Drink Federation has reached what it called a “landmark agreement” with the WWF in a bid help safeguard fish stocks at sustainable levels.

The bodies will outline their vision for reform of the European Union’s Common Fisheries Policy at today’s Seafood Expo in Brussels.

“The FDF is working closely with its members in support of a reformed common fisheries policy which meets consumers’ needs while ensuring the sustainability of stocks,” said FDF sustainability director Andrew Kuyk.

“The principles set out by WWF in collaboration with European processors and retailers represent an important signal to policy makers about the direction reform should take.”
