As consumers become more invested in supporting food and drink brands that align with their ethics and values, the seafood industry has come under increasing scrutiny. In particular, the commercial fishing sector has been accused (most visibly in Netflix's recent documentary Seaspiracy) of inflicting cruelty upon the inhabitants of the ocean, wreaking environmental havoc, and promoting unethical sourcing and production processes.
In this Three-Minute Trend, Mandy Saven, Stylus' director of Consumer Lifestyle, takes an investigative look at this scenario. While identifying critical arguments and opinions around Seaspiracy's agenda, she spotlights brands that are working tirelessly to produce ethical, sustainable products that don't impact ocean health.
In this time of accelerated change and global volatility, Stylus' Three-Minute Trend videos offer short, sharp insights into the business challenges and commercial opportunities that matter right now, whatever industry you're in.
