UK universities get new fast track to MSC-certified fish

The University Caterers Organisation, TUCO, has teamed up with the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) to offer its members a quick way to put MSC-certified fish on their menus.

The new system will make MSC certification simpler, quicker and less expensive for members, many of whom want to serve fish that is demonstrably sustainable.

By joining the TUCO Group Certification initiative, university caterers will be supporting sustainable fisheries and helping create a wave of change in sustainable fishing. Group members will receive ready-made documents and materials needed for the MSC's Chain of Custody traceability certification, essential for those wanting to display the eco-label on their menus.

Julie Barker, managing director of TUCO, explained: "TUCO has always been about using the size of our joint membership to provide benefits to caterers and when we discovered that we could make MSC certification more accessible for universities by forming a large group, we knew it would be something that would be of real value to them.
