TUF is reportedly the world's largest shelf-stable tuna processor and owner of leading global portfolio of seafood brands.

Thiraphong Chansiri, president of TUF, said, “I am exceptionally pleased for TUF to be a privileged member of DJSI Emerging Market for the first time. This is a proud achievement of the company’s sound management disciplines for the last 37 years which have been demonstrated in our prudent financial and investment practices, sustainable management policies and viable business progression.

“Today, TUF, operating on its humble principle, has been able to enjoy the best of both worlds where we manage to develop a viable business model based on economically sound, environmentally- and social- friendly practices.”

Every year, over 3,000 companies, including 800 companies from emerging markets from various industries, are invited to participate in RobecoSAM’s Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA).

For the first time, TUF is the one and only Thai company in the food category, which has been selected as an official member of DJSI Emerging Markets 2014 and amongst the 10 Thai companies listed in DJSI’s various indices. Moreover, TUF is one of the only four food companies in the Emerging Markets Index and one of the 17 food companies in all of DJSI indices.

Wit Soontaranun, director of sustainability development added, “It is such an honor that TUF is included in DJSI Emerging Markets this year — two years ahead of our original target of 2016.”
