Abstract or Summary
  • This paper considers the implications of the sustainability agenda for seafood processors in the UK. A systems approach, using the value chain system as the conceptual framework, is adopted to capture the multifaceted and often subjective nature of ‘sustainability’ and accommodate the changing nature of competitive advantage. It is concluded that, for processors, sustainability means judging seafood not just on price and overall physical quality but on a range of other non-price factors. In responding to the sustainability agenda, UK processors can either pursue offensive or defensive strategies. Strategies should be based on an understanding of the issues in the context of the entire industry chain as success will be dependent on all actors getting it right. Finally the paper considers two contrasting case studies to illustrate the recent experience of UK industry in its handling of the sustainability agenda and concludes that strategies which involve actors across the supply chain appear more robust.
