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.
SFP's Bryan Szeliga, Buyer Engagement Program Manager at SFP notes, “By working to involve their suppliers in fishery improvement projects and taking an active interest in multiple projects and programs geared toward sustainability, Wegmans has shown continued leadership and continues to be a valued SFP partner."
