Meat & Seafood: Fishery Improvement Projects
FISHING FOR SUSTAINABILITY
FROM SEA TO SHORE AND BEYOND
The sea provides a bountiful supply of food, so it’s in our best interest to fish responsibly. Participating with suppliers and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs) allows us to promote better practices to get the best our oceans have to offer for our stores and our shoppers, while ensuring this natural resource is protected for future generations.
