Whole Foods, Safeway Top Sustainable Seafood Ranking
Whole Foods and Safeway top Greenpeace’s annual ranking of supermarkets’ sustainable seafood policies.
Four supermarkets — Roundy’s, Bi-Lo, Save Mart and Publix — failed altogether, according to the 2014 Carting Away the Oceans (CATO). Kroger, the fifth biggest food retailer in the world, was dinged for selling the most “red list” species of any US grocery chain, for the third consecutive year.
Hy-Vee was evaluated for the first time and immediately entered the top five best performing retailers for sustainable seafood sourcing.
The CATO ratings evaluate retailers using a variety of factors including the sale of “red list” seafood, engagement with conservation initiatives, transparency of supply, and the establishment of cohesive internal policies. It scored each retailer on a scale of 0-10.
