“When we first heard about IPNLF, we realised that we must be part of this network as we share many of the same goals and ideas. We do our best to communicate the importance of preserving the health of tuna species and sustainable practises along the production chain. In our company, we work with 100% organic products, from the best of the land and the sea, to create a unique mixture of flavours and products. By collaborating with companies and organisations, we want our work to improve environmental sustainability, so future generations can experience our traditional flavours and cultures”Oscar Demiguel (General Manager, Conservas Emperatriz)
