The Fund will be used to create new ideas, partners and technologies such as a Fishery Improvement Project in the Indian Ocean, a plant-based protein alternative, extending Bumble Bee’s partnership with Global Ghost Gear Initiative; and eliminating plastic shrink on its packaging. The Fund will also be used to advance current initiatives.

In addition, Bumble Bee is collaborating with World Oceans Day.
