It may not seem like the best time to be in charge of Bumble Bee.
The canned tuna industry has faced all manner of scandals over the past several years. Along with its competitors, Bumble Bee was implicated in a price-fixing scheme four years ago. Bumble Bee agreed to plead guilty for its role in the conspiracy and to pay a $25 million criminal fine. And last year, the company filed for bankruptcy, blaming its “recent and significant legal challenges.” It has since been acquired by FCF, a Taiwanese fishing company.
