Brakes has been named as UK Fish Supplier of the Year by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) for the second year in a row.

The supplier, which recently joined the Sustainable Fish Cities initiative, vowing to ensure the sustainability of all its own brand and general sale fish and seafood products, was announced as the winner on Monday 8 June.

The company received the same award in 2014 for supplying the largest amount of MSC-certified seafood products.

Adam Swan, category director at Brakes, said: “It is a fantastic honour to win this award for the second time.

“We introduced the first MSC product to the foodservice industry more than ten years ago and have recently signed the Sustainable Fish Cities pledge – I think that this demonstrates that we are happy to set the standard for the industry.”

The award is aimed at recognising suppliers who have shown a particular commitment to sourcing MSC certified products and promoting sustainable choices.

George Clark, UK commercial manager at the MSC, said: “I’m delighted to name Brakes the UK’s MSC Fish Supplier of the Year 2015.

“Brakes’ commitment to sustainable fish has made it easy for schools, universities, contract caterers and independent business owners to serve seafood which has been responsibly sourced – I’m looking forward to seeing new MSC products being made available via Brakes over the next year.”
