OUR COMMITMENTS TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
We make nutritious and delicious food that your cats love, but we don't stop there. Discover our actions to create a more sustainable and hopeful future.
Offering our feline friends delicious food with integrity, both through responsible sourcing of the finest raw materials and through our manufacturing process, is a priority for the SHEBA® brand . We believe that truly gorgeous food, comes not just from expert preparation but from select ingredients that are sourced with care. To support us in our sustainable development aims, we have partnered with the Open in a new tab Marine Stewardship Council, an international non-profit organisation recognising and rewarding efforts to protect oceans and safeguard seafood
supplies for the future. When you see the MSC blue fish label on SHEBA® products you can be confident that all the fish in it has come from a traceable, sustainable source.
Currently 83%* of SHEBA® fish recipes hold the blue MSC label. And this is only a first step: The SHEBA® brand is committed to 100% sustainably sourced fish.
From a certified sustainable source - Each MSC certified fishery has been independently assessed on its specific impacts to wild fish populations and the ecosystems they're part of.
Handled with care - All along the supply chain, from ocean to plate, MSC certified fish and seafood is separated from non-certified. It is clearly labelled so it can be traced to a certified sustainable fishery.
Trustworthy - Regular DNA testing has shown that MSC labelled products are correctly labelled. So, you can trust that the fish is what its packaging or menu says it is.
Credible - For over 20 years MSC have worked with scientists, fisheries, seafood producers and brands to develop their standards and promote sustainable fishing. The MSC is recognised by both the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization and the Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative.
Seafood is an important part of the diet of many pets and people worldwide. At Mars, we’re committed to researching and implementing more and more sustainable practices for sourcing this valuable resource so that we can continue to offer our products that contain fish in a way that is healthy for people, pets and the environment.
The world is facing significant challenges. Poverty, water stress, climate change, and other social and environmental issues are holding back the potential of people, communities and business. Learn about how Mars is approaching addressing these challenges.
