Over the past decade, the call for seafood traceability has grown louder and more urgent amid rising concerns about mislabeling, illegal fishing, and diminishing stocks of some of the world’s most commercially important fish. Recent reports have now sounded additional alarms on human trafficking and modern-day slavery within the seafood supply chain. For seafood companies attempting to play by the rules, these systemic failures threaten market efficiencies, brand integrity, and profits.
The seafood traceability agenda to date has been driven largely by nonprofits, consumer advocacy groups, and government agencies focused on product recall, public health, and accurate labeling issues. Increasingly, retailers and other industry representatives are taking up the cause, having been influenced by consumer demand for product transparency and recognizing the need to mitigate risk. However, in the absence of regulation, pushing full-chain implementation of the data capture and management systems required to support true end-to-end traceability has proved challenging.
This report aims to highlight the compelling market incentives of traceability, while raising awareness of the very real human and technological barriers that hamper broader adoption. Through interviews with key technology vendors, NGOs, government agencies, trade groups, and a sample of supply-chain players, Future of Fish assessed: credible business wins offered by traceability technology systems in general; twelve specific seafood traceability vendor solutions and the key business benefits of each; key principles for a smooth transition to traceability adoption and implementation; and barriers to traceability technology adoption, successful implementation, and whole-chain traceability.
Efforts by nonprofits and government agencies to push their traceability agendas are often confounded by the fact that many companies perceive traceability technology as purely an added cost with no measurable returns. However, traceability technology offers some clear business wins for seafood companies. Within the seafood industry, the ability of fishers, processors, distributors, and retailers to seamlessly share key information about a product as it wends its way from dock to dinner plate can improve inventory management, reduce operational inefficiencies, reduce waste and improve yields, increase the pace of decision making, and fuel innovation across the entire business ecosystem. For an industry where the difference between making a profit and being in the red can be a matter of pennies per pound, traceability technology can provide clear competitive advantage.CES is here
CES is here, and we’re ready to make it go ‘boom.’ You won’t hear any conversations quite like the ones in the Tech Boom Boom Room, where a diverse group of female leaders will lead four intimate and insightful discussions about tech, culture and leadership on Tuesday, January 9. Here’s the agenda (all times are in PST):
12:00pm – Welcome from Joy Howard, CMO, Sonos 12:10pm – Session 1: Inspiring the Next Generation of Artists and Engineers12:00pm – Welcome from Joy Howard, CMO, Sonos 12:10pm – Session 1: Inspiring the Next Generation of Artists and Engineers
The future is female. The future is diverse. The future is accepting. The future is inclusive. Millennial expectations are changing greatly and our industries must be poised to meet the moment. How do we inspire the next generation of artists and engineers to innovate?
1:00pm – Session 2: Spaces for Social Capital
What experiences and environments (online and offline) exist/should exist to afford women and people of color the same relationship-building opportunities as the all ‘boys clubs’ and ‘boys outings’ of yore? How do we incentivize online communities to design meaningful safeguards and consequences for harassment, hate speech, and other abuse, which commonly targets and silences women and people of color?
2:00pm – Session 3: Democratizing Genius
The arrogant, unyielding lone genius or truculent boy-king in a hoodie — business culture has lionized certain leadership tropes, and in doing so negated the truth that leadership manifests in different ways, in very different types of people. Who are the ‘unconventional’ or ‘unexpected’ leaders, what can we learn from their example, and how do we elevate their appeal?
3:00pm – Session 4: Leadership The Future of Talent
What programming and investment is required to actively train or groom women and people of color for executive leadership? What are the frequent obstacles cited when it comes to finding diverse talent, and how do we systematically overcome them?
3:45pm – Conversations Conclude
