Meat & Seafood: Seafood Sustainability Program
MAKING PROGRESS WITH OUR SEAFOOD PARTNERS
Leading the way in seafood sustainability starts with working together with partners who share our passion. Our program stands out by supporting the seafood industry as it progresses. In the meantime, we will do our part to ensure that we maintain sound, sustainable practices.
Our program is divided into three parts:
1. Research and Data Collection
Each year, we conduct research and collect data for the top 85% of products sold in our Seafood department.
2. Product Evaluation, Decisions, and Improvement Projects
In conjunction with Sustainable Fisheries Partnerships, we annually evaluate our sources of supply and determine which of the sources need improvement. We then prioritize the projects we will work on the following year. This process helps us decide whether to sell a product, enhance fisheries through improvement projects, or halt the sale of a product until the issue is resolved.
3. Measure Progress
Throughout our improvement projects, we track our progress to ensure we are meeting milestones annually to guarantee that we are achieving our goal for a more sustainable seafood supply.
