Salem, Ore.— March 14, 2024 — Trustwell, a leading innovator in the food supply chain sector, is proud to announce its recent Endorser membership in the Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability (GDST). This pivotal move underscores Trustwell’s commitment to sustainability and transparency within the seafood industry, aligning with global efforts to improve traceability practices.

Continuing its collaboration with other industry leaders, NGOs, and stakeholders, Trustwell is working to establish and implement international standards for seafood traceability and sustainability. This initiative is crucial for ensuring food safety and safeguarding consumer trust in seafood products.

“Trustwell has a long history with the GDST, stretching back to its beginnings. Joining the new Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability, as a full-scale, industry-led organization is a significant step forward in our mission to revolutionize the food supply chain through technology and collaboration,” said Julie McGill, VP of Supply Chain Strategy & Insights at Trustwell. “Our expertise in supply chain solutions, including FoodLogiQ Traceability, positions us uniquely to contribute to and benefit from the GDST’s initiatives. We are excited to share our knowledge and work alongside other GDST members to tackle the challenges facing the seafood industry.”

Trustwell’s involvement in the GDST has included participation in the Dialogue Advisory Group (DAG), where it has helped create tools like the Standards & Guidelines for Interoperable Seafood Traceability Systems. Additionally, Trustwell has participated in GDST-led seafood interoperability pilots, collaborating with multiple trading partners and solutions.

“The GDST Foundation is delighted to welcome Trustwell into the community of forward-thinking Partners who publicly adopted the GDST Standard as the single pathway to interoperable digital traceability,” said Greg Brown, Executive Director of GDST. “GDST Capable platforms are the solution for fishery and aquaculture supply chains seeking to comply with Regulatory, provenance and sustainability requirements.”
