Where did the GDST come from?

The Global Dialogue was born in 2017 out of seed-funding from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Oceans 5 collaborative, responding to a recognised need for greater supply-chain traceability in the seafood sphere – as part of an effort to drive improvements in sustainability across the sector. The framework for establishing the Dialogue was created through workshops organized by World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the Institute of Food Technologists’ (IFT) Global Food Traceability Centre (GFTC), with the participation of dozens of industry stakeholders from around the world. What was an informal Dialogue between partners coalesced into the GDST – a formal, permanent platform for sharing information on interoperable digital traceability, driving progress against the Standard, and creating a movement of Partners to deliver that mission. At the heart of what we do, our Dialogues continue – helping the Standard to evolve, and drawing practical insights of stakeholders into all of our work.
