Raley’s is committed to choices that are better for our planet.

Raley's Supermarket Announces Transition to Sustainable Seafood

  (UNITED STATES, 7/12/2017)

Raley’s has announced the early completion of a transition of its fresh seafood offerings to sustainable seafood companywide as part of an ongoing effort to change the way the world eats, one plate at a time.

This ambitious goal was accomplished six months ahead of schedule, making it easier for customers to select the best fresh, environmentally sound products.

Raley's achieved its goal six months ahead of schedule of Sustainable Seafood at all Raley's, Bel Air and Nob Hill Foods.

"When humans consume seafood, we leave a permanent mark on the ecosystem,” said Keith Knopf, Raley’s President & Chief Operating Officer. “Sustainable seafood represents a healthy relationship with our planet that can endure forever. It is a way to replenish our oceans and manage their resources into the future. Informed consumers can make all the difference by finding out where their fish comes from and by making responsible choices.”

 Wild caught salmon.

Sustainable seafood is either caught wild or farmed in ways that consider the long-term vitality of harvested species and the well-being of the oceans without harming affected ecosystems. Raley’s fishery partners are dedicated to preserving the health of marine environments for future generations. Providing sustainable seafood means working with trusted fisheries and fishermen to ensure seafood is sourced responsibly and ethically.

Certified fisheries and farms must go through a rigorous process to validate that the practices used comply with requirements established by international experts. Raley’s only sources its fresh seafood from fisheries or farms with certifications recognized internationally as credible by scientific, industry and non-governmental organizations.

In addition, Raley’s vendors must provide documented evidence that products do not come from sources that utilize any illegal methods. Raley’s requires full seafood traceability, including audits and substantial documentation.

Raley’s does not purchase species that are threatened and have no credible improvement plan.

Raley’s seafood program, fishery certification and ongoing seafood audits are in partnership with Resiliensea Group. In addition, Raley’s seafood staff has undergone extensive training to answer customer questions about sustainability.
