Conservas Campos in search of sustainable food

In a world of increasing population, it is no longer enough for food to be safe and nutritious, but at the same time, the sustainability factor enters stronger than ever.

Food along its chain of production, distribution and consumption is one of the most important sources of energy consumption, it generates waste and even a lot of food ends up becoming garbage in the process, it is therefore important to improve this reality.

This is something that Conservas Campos understood 100 years ago, the importance of being able to provide a noble product that is nourishing, that can last over time and that can be brought home the following year.

But today the commitment is much greater, not only the sustainability of fishing is sought, establishing closed seasons, size parameters and seasons to ensure the permanence of the resource, it is something that will much further, it also establishes the importance of sustainability in canning manufacturing, where solar energy is used to obtain energy, among other measures.

They also work to promote environmental practices at home, especially with a focus on ocean conservation, as earthly beings we seem to forget that most of the planet and most of life is in the oceans. oceans and if we don’t preserve them and continue to treat them like garbage dump sooner or later will affect ourselves.

Certify sustainability

This is an important step, as the standards of many of these certifications are high and it is a kind of guarantee for the consumer that things are done right.

Campos has the MSC certification which guarantees that no bad practices are used and that it is about conserving the species with which it works, as well as the others present in the ecosystem.

Because in many systems the biggest problem is that when catching one type of fish, others get discarded and end up being returned dead or in poor condition to the sea. This happens mostly due to the use of trawling systems prohibited by this type. of fish.

In short, this type of sustainability certification is designed to prevent overfishing and leave enough fish in the sea for future reproduction and renewal, thereby maintaining the health and productivity of the marine ecosystem.

Respect for the structure, function and diversity of marine ecosystems and habitats is implicit, minimizing impacts on other species, with particular attention to those that are protected or threatened.

It also has the APR seal from Aenor which certifies that they only use responsibly fished tuna. And not just stamps, the company has earned various recognitions for its sustainability achievements, such as the CET diploma from UNESCO.

That’s why, as I’ve said many times before, the most important thing when looking at a food is not so much the food itself, but how it was produced.

There are foods that may seem very eco-friendly, but they are not and others that may seem the opposite when they are, and even the same food may or may not be sustainable depending on how it was produced. .

Companies like Campos with more than a hundred years of fishing, processing and packaging quality products are a guarantee in this regard.
