Packaging company becomes NFI Crab Council member

Alabama-based Gilpin and Company, Inc. has become the first associate member of the National Fisheries Institute’s Crab Council.

Founded in 1963, Gilpin and Company is a global company that provides a wide range of packaging solutions, including easy-open closures and plastic containers used for pasteurised crab meat.

“As a leader in the packaging world, we have chosen to look past packaging and join the NFI Crab Council in this effort and focus on what goes in our containers,” said Paul McClure, president of Gilpin and Company. “When you see a group as varied and dedicated to the sustainability of just one species as the NFI Crab Council is, we can’t help but want to get involved. Joining forces with these companies to ensure the future of the industry helps us make sure there’s a focus on sustainability throughout the value chain.”

The Council was started in 2009 and charges its members a quarterly assessment based on the amount of Blue Swimming Crab they import and it uses those resources to fund fisheries improvement plans. Associate members, who do not import Blue Swimming Crab, have a separate dues structure.
