People & Communities

Thai Union takes responsibility for improving the lives of those living and working in the regions where we operate.

This includes cleaning marine environments and ending hunger through food donations to educating children and providing nutritional information to local communities.

There is a global protein challenge of how to feed an estimated world population of 9 billion people by 2030. Without sustainable seafood production, both from aquaculture and wild capture, the world cannot achieve the Sustainable Development Goal of Zero Hunger.
