The Baltic Sea Day is an annual celebration of the sea launched by the John Nurminen Foundation. The goal of the day is to inspire people to enjoy our unique sea and to take concrete action for its benefit. In addition to the celebration, the Baltic Sea Day aims to raise awareness of the diverse nature, culture and history of the sea.
Cleaning out the Baltic Sea by eating
As food industry actors, we can make a difference in the wellbeing of the Baltic Sea by choosing Baltic Sea fish from the family Cyprinidae for our plates. This year, we are participating in the celebration by serving our over 50,000 customers at schools, day-care centres, centres for senior citizens and lunch restaurants fish loaf made from sustainably caught Baltic Sea bream and rainbow trout.
Sustainable development is important to us
In accordance with the Baltic Sea programme of the City of Espoo, we aim to increase the share of sustainably caught Baltic Sea fish and Finnish freshwater fish in our fish food offering. In this way, we can help remove a significant amount of nutrients from the Baltic Sea.
We also follow the recommendations of the WWF Seafood Guide by purchasing fish caught from sustainable fish stocks using sustainable fishing methods.
We changed our fish loaf recipe for the Baltic Sea menu. We added Baltic Sea bream into the fish loaf mixture as a new ingredient, which let us halve the amount of rainbow trout needed to make our fish loaf. As a result of the development work, our popular fish dish became more responsible, which is an important aspect for our customers of all ages.
Enjoy your meal to heal the Baltic Sea!
