Wegmans has been a partner of SFP since 2013. The retailer is very active in the sustainable seafood movement, communicating with legislators and government regulators on marine conservation issues. They have expressed interest in participating in Ocean Disclosure Project, announced antibiotic and chemical policy for aquaculture-produced fish, and released farmed salmon specs that require FIPs for feed sources and zonal management. Wegmans has also developed a tuna procurement policy that addresses tuna sold in the stores' seafood, grocery, and sushi departments.
Kathryn Novak, SFP’s Director of Buyer Engagement, said, “Wegmans has shown continued leadership by working to involve its suppliers in fishery improvement projects and taking an active interest in multiple projects and programs geared toward sustainability. SFP is pleased to count Wegmans among its most valued partners." Learn more here.
