SCOUT'S RESPONSIBILITY POLICY

Scout works directly with North American fisheries and sustainable farms from coast to coast. Our fishery partners meet the highest standard in sustainability, including reduced by-catch and minimal ecosystem impact. We source from responsible fisheries that support their communities. Fishermen, producers and processors are paid fair wages and receive benefits. Our farmed products are fed from natural sources and have never been exposed to antibiotics, hormones or overcrowding in their pens.

THE CRAFT OF CANNING

Reducing Food Waste:

50% of fresh and frozen seafood ends up in landfills, a major issue we need to change. By preserving seafood through the canning we extend the shelf life of our products, reducing food waste. You enjoy delicious seafood with 100% of the nutritional benefits without any additives or preservatives.

 

Lower Carbon Footprint:

The carbon footprint of canned seafood is substantially less compared to the energy requirements needed in the supply chain of chilled and frozen seafood.

PACKAGING

No Plastic. Ever.

Every year, 8 million metric tons of plastic end up in our oceans. It's equivalent to five grocery bags filled with plastic for every foot of coastline in the world. In 2025, the annual input is estimated to be about twice greater, or 10 bags full of plastic per foot of coastline.

 

100% Recyclable Packaging.

Our aluminum cans are BPA free and have the highest rate of recycling in the world compared to every other packaging format. Our boxes are made with recycled card stock and printed using Non toxic, vegetable based water soluble ink.

1% FOR THE PLANET

Scout is a proud member of One Percent for the Planet, an international organization whose members contribute at least one percent of their annual sales to environmental causes. Scout re-invests 1% into climate action projects that help protect our oceans and waterways, with a commitment to investing more as we grow.

NOT FOR SALE

Not for Sale is our non profit partner and first recipient of our 1% for the planet contribution. NFS works to end exploitation worldwide.
