Sign the Petition to

Mr. Shue Wing Chan, Chicken of the Sea CEO

As the largest brand of Thai Union, I'm calling on you to create and enforce a strong tuna sourcing policy to protect our oceans and ensure fair labor practices, here in the US and for all of Thai Union's global brands. I want Chicken of the Sea's products to be sourced from:

1) Tuna fisheries that maintain healthy tuna stocks and reduce the catch of other marine life to best practice bycatch levels;

2) fully traceable and audited supply chains that ensure products are legal and meet the company's policy; and

3) operations that uphold the strictest human and workers' rights standards so that consumers can be assured Chicken of the Sea tuna is sustainable and socially responsible.

Signed,

Greenpeace

The global tuna industry is out of control. In a relentless search for profits, tuna suppliers have been caught doing anything to save a buck — including forcing people to work on fishing boats for little or no pay. Aggressive fishing practices overfish our oceans while capturing and killing thousands of sharks, sea turtles, and other untargeted animals.

Chicken of the Sea, one of the US's biggest tuna brands, is owned by the biggest tuna company in the world — tuna giant Thai Union. Thai Union has been embroiled in scandals and human rights abuses throughout its seafood supply chains. Chicken of the Sea claims to be sustainable, but its policies do little to protect ocean wildlife or workers at sea.

Take action today and tell Mr. Shue Wing Chan, Chicken of the Sea CEO, to commit to a strong policy that ensures that the company's tuna is truly sustainable and ethically-sourced.
