Giant Eagle and SFP Partner on Sustainable Seafood

Last updated on June 13th, 2024 at 12:08 pm

Multi-format food and fuel retailer, Giant Eagle and the international nonprofit organization, Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP), have partnered to develop a comprehensive sustainable seafood procurement strategy.

SFP will work with Giant Eagle to develop a seafood procurement strategy geared toward offering the most sustainable sources of wild-caught and farmed seafood to consumers. SFP will evaluate Giant Eagle’s supply chain and work with the retailer, with the final objective to fully engage Giant Eagle’s suppliers in Fisheries Improvement Projects (FIP) and Aquaculture Improvement Projects (AIP).

“Giant Eagle is committed to providing a wide variety of the freshest and highest quality seafood while being good stewards of the marine environment and fisheries around the world,” said Rich Castle, Giant Eagle director of seafood. “Our partnership with SFP will help us ensure that we source our seafood responsibly, and protect the environment and the food supply for future generations. We look forward to delivering actionable next steps on how we can further improve our seafood procurement strategy in the coming months.”
