JCCU launched the "Shrimp Aquaculture Improvement Project in Indonesia" in July 2018 in collaboration with WWF Japan, WWF Indonesia, and local companies. The aim of this project is to achieve sustainable shrimp farming based on the ASC (Aquaculture Stewardship Council) Shrimp Standard in shrimp ponds where raw materials for the Co-op's black tiger shrimp products are produced. 3 yen is set aside for every purchase of CO・OP Brand Products that use black tiger shrimp and donated to the project through WWF Japan. The project restores mangroves that were lost due to the development of shrimp farming , provides trainings to shrimp farmers, and conducts research to conserve shrimp brood stock.
