Arlington, VA (PRWEB) September 23, 2015
The nonprofit Seafood Nutrition Partnership (SNP) has announced its formal recognition of Trident Seafoods as a Visionary Partner, the highest donor level, within SNP’s Chairman’s Campaign Circle. This honor acknowledges Trident Seafoods’ significant contributions in support of SNP’s upcoming national public health education campaign, which launches in October 2015 as an effort to build awareness about the essential nutritional benefits from eating seafood at least twice a week.
“Seafood Nutrition Partnership’s public health campaign is perfectly aligned with Trident Seafoods’ mission to provide delicious, healthy seafood products from sustainable fisheries,” said Joe Bundrant, president and CEO of Trident Seafoods. “We’re proud to play a role in helping Americans better understand the health benefits of eating seafood.”
“We are honored that Trident Seafoods is providing an extraordinary level of support in our effort to promote public health through better understanding of proper nutrition and the role that seafood can play in the prevention of life-threatening conditions like heart disease and stroke,” said Linda Cornish, executive director of Seafood Nutrition Partnership. “USDA HHS dietary guidelines recommend eating seafood twice a week for optimal health, yet only 1 in 10 Americans follow this advice. Together with Trident Seafoods, we hope to inspire a healthier America by promoting a nutrient-rich diet that includes seafood.”
