We believe sustainability is a never-ending journey. Part of that journey leads us to focus our efforts on a sustainably-sourced seafood supply. We are proud of our seafood, and we want our people and our customers to know about it.
From the fresh seafood counter and the Sushi department, to the Wegmans brand products in the freezer case and the canned tuna in the grocery aisle, we partner only with trusted suppliers who meet our high standards and share our value for making a difference. We require them to follow best practices to help protect natural resources. Our merchants personally visit supplier facilities, and rely on codes of practice and third-party audits to implement and verify our rigorous specifications. These steps help us support fishermen, their families, and their communities while offering affordable seafood of the highest quality to our customers.
Working closely with Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) since 2011, we rely on science and data to help us decide how and where to responsibly source all seafood carried at Wegmans. SFP scientists evaluate fisheries around the world and we use their information to understand our company’s impact on the future of seafood sustainability so we can make responsible sourcing decisions.
