“The sea is a great source of life, a source your grandchildren should also be able to enjoy in the future. Both in nature and in the kitchen and in a responsible manner. That’s why Queens opts as often as possible for products with the MSC quality mark, which have been caught and processed with an eye for sustainability and nature.”

– Harry Hoogendoorn, general manager of Queens Products

The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) has contributed to promoting sustainable fishing and healthy oceans since the 1990s. The MSC certification programme for fisheries is an important element. According to the quality mark, which was drawn up by the United Nations, every fishery is obliged to follow the 3 main principles:

  • The fish stocks must be and remain healthy.
  • The effect of fishing on the ecosystem must be and remain limited.
  • The fishery management must be properly organised and must be inspected.

Queens Products have borne the MSC quality mark on most of the products in its range since 2007. This is easily recognised by the blue label on the packaging.MSC_NL-Portrait

Queens Products is registered under number SGS-NL-MSC-C-0250.
