Marine Stewardship Council

One-third of the world’s seafood population is in decline, non-profit organisation Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), is on a mission to safeguard the future of our seafood and ensure our future grandchildren can also enjoy the same variety as we have today. To spread the message of protecting the future of our seafood and encouraging Aussies to look for the MSC ‘blue fish tick’ when purchasing seafood, Papaya embarked a three-pronged campaign for Marine Stewardship Council’s Sustainable Seafood Week 2020.

With a new generation of chefs launching in the hospitality industry that are passionate about sourcing sustainable produce and Gen Z Australians following Greta Thunberg’s mission on sustainability, Papaya brought these powerful movements together for Sustainable Seafood Week 2020 and created the theme of ‘Generation Seafood’.

By leveraging our hospitality relationships, Papaya hosted a masterclass event with pioneer chefs with a sustainable cause, Josh Niland and Analiese Gregory. The event was sold out within 72 hours and received media coverage on Broadsheet, TimeOut, EatDrinkPlay and Sitchu.

With Gen Z’s fight on climate change trending, Papaya launched a nationwide survey to young Australians and discovered that they are concerned about the impact on our oceans and are about the future of their seafood.

Papaya leveraged these survey findings for Sustainable Seafood Week and secured premium coverage on, Daily Telegraph, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and a radio segment on 2SER Breakfast Show. In total, the Generation Seafood campaign for Sustainable Seafood Week had a media reach of 48 million people!
