Corporate Sustainability Implementations

As food insecurity has been on the rise in many areas of the globe, at FCF, we are also committed to constantly improve on our sustainability efforts across our entire operation. We believe that sustainable business practices are not only beneficial to the planet, but also to all our employees, customers and the communities in which we reside in. Ultimately, everything we do is grounded in a greater purpose: to feed lives through the power of the ocean.

Promoting a Positive Workplace Environment

At FCF, we place a strong emphasis on our employees’ well-being. We are committed to fostering a safe, healthy, and equal workplace environment, guided by international policies such as the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and International Labor Organization conventions. Additionally, we adhere to local laws to protect our employees’ rights. Our pledge is to ensure that every employee enjoys fair and equal working conditions, and we firmly prohibit any form of discrimination, bullying, sexual harassment, or forced labor. We take proactive measures to enhance employee well-being, offering various training programs, activities, and dedicated projects that promote physical and mental health while supporting career development.

Here are our core principles:

Zero Tolerance for Workplace Bullying
