GTA Partners feel empowered by collaborating and advocating as part of a larger association and enjoy the access partnership provides to exclusive resources and training. But don’t just take our word for it. See what our Partners have to say.
“The GTA is doing things that we can’t do as a company ourselves. I can rely on what GTA is doing; that makes things easier for us. We are not alone.”
Andrea Webber - DIRECTOR CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY METRO AG
“Before the GTA, many across the supply chain didn’t appreciate how the RFMOs shape the tuna business, and the importance of playing a role there. Commitments from companies to achieve sustainability goals in a period of time is not the norm, but the GTA is achieving that with its partners as part of the 5 Year Strategy - that is transparency.”
Robin Teets - PRINCIPAL ARIA STRATEGIC COMMUNICATIONS, LLC FOR NGO TUNA FORUM
“The GTA helps to know who the good guys are in the tuna business. The GTA helps build connections with other companies with the same interest.”
Hugo Byrnes - VICE PRESIDENT PRODUCT INTEGRITY, AHOLD DELHAIZE
“The Global Tuna Alliance is a good advocate for a diverse but proactive group of partners from all sectors of the tuna supply chain.”
John Burton - CEO, WORLD WISE FOODS
Our alliance is growing. More and more of the world’s biggest retailers and supply chain companies are subscribing to our vision. The infographic shows our Partners’ overall purchasing power in the tuna sector between 2021-22.
Some of the GTA’s most important work involves engaging with the delegations who comprise four of the five tuna Regional Fisheries Management Organisations (tRFMOs), the bodies responsible for managing tuna fishing practices.
Through a mix of powerful social media campaigns, roundtables, compelling press statements and creative public advertising, we work tirelessly to ensure the voice of the market is heard.
