Atuna BV and Brusfoods BV of the Netherlands No Longer Part of Earth Island Dolphin Safe Program

The managing director of Atuna BV and Brusfoods BV has informed Earth Island Institute that these tuna companies will no longer be a part of the International Dolphin Safe program.  We have been asked to remove these companies from our list of approved Dolphin Safe companies.  Therefore, we can no longer verify that these companies will continue to provide Dolphin Safe tuna.

Under terms of the Dolphin Safe Policy, companies should not purchase tuna products from companies that are not approved and monitored Dolphin Safe companies on the list. 

At this time, we cannot confirm that Atuna BV or Brusfoods BV are purchasing, procuring, and selling tuna caught without chasing, netting or killing dolphins.
