Meat & Seafood: Partners in Sustainability

Partners in Sustainability

Navigating the world of sustainable seafood isn’t easy. As you learn more about this important topic, you’ll find two names pop up frequently: Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) and the Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative (GSSI). Here’s a close-up look at how we work with these organizations.
Publix is proud to be a supporter of Sustainable Fisheries Partnership’s (SFP’s) Target 75 (T75) Initiative. T75 aims to ensure that, by the end of 2020, at least 75 percent of seafood production in key sectors is sustainable or making regular, verifiable, improvements toward sustainability. T75 is the first milestone on the path to the ultimate goal of 100 percent of seafood worldwide produced sustainably. Meeting this goal will not only help ensure the continued availability of high-quality, affordable seafood products for our customers, it will also help safeguard the health of marine and aquatic ecosystems and biodiversity around the world.

Sustainable Fisheries Partnership

Our participation with SFP gives us the opportunity to better understand important issues about seafood sustainability. We learn where to engage our sustainability efforts, how fisheries manage their stock, and the health of a fishery. This partnership also empowers us to invest in fisheries to help them gain the resources they need to improve their sustainability practices, a process known as a fishery improvement project (FIP). We’ve donated $360,000 to SFP since 2011 to support FIPs.

Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative

We partner with GSSI to ensure that current and future sustainability claims meet a rigorous set of standards, so everyone can feel confident about their seafood purchases.

Ocean Disclosure Project

Publix became the first US supermarket retailer to participate in the Ocean Disclosure Project (ODP). The ODP is an excellent resource to help you make informed decisions about your seafood. You can find fishery locations, sustainability ratings, environmental impacts, and the types of fishing gear used in the process. Learn more about the ODP here.*
