Blue Star Foods, A leader in Pasteurized Blue Swimming Crab, announced today the appointment of Josette Emlen Genio as Sustainability Manager for all Blue Star and affiliated entities in the Philippines.  Josette will lead Blue Star’s sustainability and traceability initiatives for the Philippines.

Josette, formerly Program Director and Fisheries Manager of the Philippine Association of Crab Processors Inc. has held these and other relevant positions within fisheries science and management space. She is a graduate of the University of the Philippines and holds Master of Science in Fisheries – Aquaculture.

Josette Emlen Genio Said: “I have worked with academe and industries as a Researcher and have done significant research on aquaculture and fish diseases in the past. As a previous Fisheries Manager, I am knowledgeable in seafood sustainability, supply chain management, fisheries improvement projects, and marine eco-certifications as well as successfully leading numerous improvement initiatives for crab fisheries in the Philippines. The opportunity to join an organization like Blue Star Foods is one that I have thought about for a long time. Fisheries management is a growing entity within many developing countries. Sustainability and traceability are the future of seafood. The Vision of Founder and CEO/CSO John Keeler is one that I share and understand the importance of. I am excited about the challenges that lie ahead in this new opportunity with Blue Star Foods.”

John Keeler, CEO/CSO Blue Star Foods Added: “I have had the privilege of seeing Josette’s work through the NFI Crab Council and have been impressed. Blue Star Foods is excited to have Josette join the team. We are building a new millennial enterprise of sustainable and traceable seafood products for a global, consumer-driven seafood economy. We have implemented and are practicing a triple bottom line (3BL) business approach, and we confidently know the Long-term benefits will outweigh the short-term costs. We have a goal of 100% sustainable and traceable by 2020, and we are on pace to meet this goal. Additions like Josette will help make this a reality for Blue Star Foods and our global audience.”

Blue Star Foods was the first innovator to revolutionize the crab industry with its Eco-Fresh pouches, significantly reducing the number of recycled materials entering the earth and substantially reducing its carbon footprint. The (3BL) business model approach is one that has been gaining considerable momentum over the years within hundreds of multinational corporations, providing a better path to business responsibility, sustainability, and traceability. Blue Star Foods will be exhibiting at the North East Seafood Expo March 11th-13th 2018 in booth#1105.
