CGF Announces New Members for January 2022

PARIS, January 25, 2022 /3BL Media/ - The Consumer Goods Forum is delighted to announce the following new companies have joined our global membership community and, in doing so, have confirmed their commitment to our vision of better lives through better business.

The Bumble Bee Seafood Company is passionately pursuing its purpose of feeding people’s lives through the power of the ocean. The iconic 120-year-old fishing company consistently aims to deliver delicious, healthy, and affordable food to consumers while working hard to find new ways to protect the ocean and those that rely on it. Bumble Bee is firmly anchored in a commitment to connect the world to the ocean by re-defining sourcing, producing, and enjoying products from and inspired by the ocean.

“At Bumble Bee, our purpose is to help feed the world and protect our oceans. To do this, we continually adhere to our commitment to put people first, and that includes prioritising the health and safety of our employees and those who work on vessels from which we source fish. Together with our parent company, we are working hard to close the gap on some of the biggest sustainability and safety challenges in the seafood industry. We are proud to now be members of The Consumer Good Forum, as well as  active members of the CGF Human Rights Coalition and to join together with like-minded companies to work to end forced labour.” – Jan Tharp, President and CEO, Bumble Bee Seafood Company 

Neste creates solutions for combating climate change and accelerating a shift to a circular economy. We refine waste, residues and innovative raw materials into renewable fuels and sustainable feedstock for plastics and other materials. We are the world’s leading producer of renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel, developing chemical recycling to combat the plastic waste challenge. We aim at helping customers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions with our renewable and circular solutions by at least 20 million tons annually by 2030. As a technologically advanced refiner of high-quality oil products with a commitment to reach carbon-neutral production by 2035, we are also introducing renewable and recycled raw materials such as waste plastic as refinery raw materials. We have consistently been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices and the Global 100 list of the world’s most sustainable companies. In 2020, Neste’s revenue stood at EUR 11.8 billion, with 94% of the company’s comparable operating profit coming from renewable products. 

“Neste aims to be a global leader in renewable and circular solutions and, given the urgency of the climate crisis, partnerships and coalitions will play a significant role in our journey. We recently published our broadened sustainability vision, which covers climate, biodiversity, human rights, raw materials and supply chain, so joining the CGF and its Forest Positive Coalition of Action and Human Rights Coalition is therefore a natural step for us. We look forward to working closely with our new partners as we drive towards our purpose of creating a healthier planet for our children.” – Peter Vanacker, CEO, NESTE

Leader in land-based aquaculture, and premier provider of high quality turbot and sole, in an environmentally sound manner, Stolt Sea Farm’s mission is to ensure that future generations continue to enjoy wonderful seafood. The Company has its main operations in Spain, with most of its production facilities located in the Iberian Peninsula. Stolt Sea Farm sells its products in more than 30 countries worldwide, with more than half of these sales outside Spain. The successful farming of these highly regarded species requires extensive scientific know-how, sophisticated technology, and highly specialised custom-designed facilities. To achieve our goals, we engage in a process of continuous improvement, driven by substantial ongoing investments in research and development. Stolt Sea Farm is a division of Stolt-Nielsen Limited (SNL). A long-term investor and manager of businesses focused on opportunities in logistics, distribution, and aquaculture. The Stolt-Nielsen portfolio consists of its three global bulk-liquid and chemicals logistics businesses – Stolt Tankers, Stolthaven Terminals and Stolt Tank Containers – Stolt Sea Farm and investments in LNG. Stolt-Nielsen Limited is listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange (Oslo Børs: SNI).

“We believe in the power of collaboration,  we are convinced SSF has a lot to share but much more to learn from others, and are deeply committed to sustainability being one of the drivers of growth for our company. Also, we are focusing on understanding our consumers better, and the CGF can be a source of insights for us. Finally, we also believe the networking opportunities the CGF offers Stolt Sea Farm are relevant.” – Jordi Trias, President, Stolt Sea Farm

As the only association in the consumer goods industry that is truly global, while embracing both retailers and manufacturers, and service providers, our members understand the value of our uniqueness. Many of the opportunities and issues that we face as an industry can’t be addressed by individual companies alone, or just by collaborating regionally. The CGF offers you a seat at the table, and our members know that our global, cross-value chain perspective is critical to helping drive positive change globally and in securing long-term, sustainable business growth.
