How To Become A Pacifical Partner
In order to secure strong supply chains, there are specific collaborative set-ups at every step of the supply chain. In order to become our partner we have specified our collaborative set up in either a Memorandum Of Understanding or a more basic Terms Of Service.
The tuna supply chain can be very long with many entities before the final tuna product reaches the consumer. To simplify the complexity in the Tuna supply we identified 4 main categories of activities, with subdivisions of specific roles within those categories. Of course we understand that reality is never simple, and that our partners may be active in more than 1 category with several roles. Together we will cooperate in the Pacifical worldwide network in order to realize efficient cooperation and the maximal results.
To get started, please follow below questions to indicate which activities describe best to your daily

Pacifical is not a direct supplying company but cooperates with many partners in the entire Tuna supply chain. Our program is built of multiple fishing companies, importers and traders, more than 35 processing partners and many brands, retailers, food service and processing companies who actively work with our sustainable MSC tuna.
To ensure transparency of our traceable MSC-certified Skipjack-, Yellowfin- and Bigeye tuna we share below the Pacifical partners who already actively catch, trade and process our sustainable tuna caught in the Pacifical islands waters.
