Sustainability

TSG in association with the Sri Lankan Seafood Association has commenced a Fisheries Improvement Plan (FIP), under the guidance of Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP). Our participation in this initiative aims to enhance the management and sustainability efforts of the Sri Lankan tuna industry. TSG is in the process of working with the National Fisheries Institute (NFI) to develop Sri Lankan Blue Swimming Crab as an FIP. This effort will ensure the sustainability of these resources for future generations.

Corporate Social Responsibility

TSG is firmly committed to corporate responsibility in Sri Lanka. We are involved in projects that ensure the sustainable management and utilization of the fishery resources, so as to create long term jobs and improve the livelihood of the Sri Lankan people. TSG has been recognized for our efforts in corporate responsibility by the International Labor Organization (ILO) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). In collaboration with the ILO and AusAid, TSG have established crab processing plants in war affected northern Sri Lanka.
