We are also committed to the eco-friendly sourcing of our seafood, following the Montery Bay Aquariaum Seafood Watch standards for seafood sourcing. We also have an extensive sustainability program in place (see Peace Dining Corporation’s 2016 annual sustainability report ). This governs our sourcing of our other food ingredients and also everything from our packaging to our warehousing and our fleet of low-emission delivery trucks.
Seafood Standards We Follow:
More About Freshness and Quality
At Mai we pride ourselves on starting with the highest quality all-natural ingredients to make our superior sushi and Japanese-inspired dishes. Our products are always free of artificial preservatives, coloring, flavor-enhancers, and hydrogenated fats. These high standards are inseparable from our core values, and set us apart from our competitors.
Our roots are firmly-grounded in Japanese cuisine & culture. Some of our items are traditional, such as Salmon or Tuna Nigiri; others are modern, like the Vegetable Salad Dressing Rolls or our Guacamole Gunkan. No matter what, our master chefs stay true to their authentic Japanese heritage in creating menu items.
More About Bluefin Tuna
To protect consumer health and help conserve marine life, we do not use Bluefin tuna in our products. Mai uses only Yellowfin Tuna, which contains less amounts of mercury than its larger cousins, and has an ideal texture, color and taste for sushi. As part of our mission to seek out environmentally-friendly sources, we also have introduced Pacific Northwest Wild Albacore Tuna, which experts agree is one of the leading sustainably caught fishes. All the albacore in Mai’s sushi and sashimi, comes from the cold Pacific waters, where the migrating fish are between the ages of 2-5 years old, and have not had time to accumulate significant amounts of mercury. Mercury levels in such fish are at minimal trace or non-detectable levels.
In our most recent independently conducted lab test, the mercury content in Genji’s yellowfin tuna resulted in a yield of 0.280 parts per million, well below the 1.0 action level.
Our parent company, Peace Dining Corporation, also owns our ingredients supplier and distribution company, GHG, which services our other businesses as well as external clients. GHG operates a warehouse that follows eco-friendly initiatives which limit negative impacts to the environment while reducing our carbon footprint. They also operate a fleet of industry-leading low-emissions delivery trucks with three temperature storage compartments.
