Other Media | SeafoodSource: Uber, Stop & Shop add grocery delivery services, with seafood continuing sales increase streak

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, July 08, 2020

Grocery e-commerce sales spiked, and fresh, frozen, and shelf-stable seafood sales grew again in June, as U.S. consumers continued to shift their food buying from foodservice to retail.

U.S. online grocery sales climbed 9 percent in June to USD 7.2 billion (EUR 6.4 billion), according to a new Brick Meets Click/Mercatus Grocery Survey. Fully 45.6 million households used delivery and pickup services to fulfill a larger portion of their grocery needs, Brick Meets Click/ Mercatus said in a press release. The increase was almost entirely driven by a 9 percent increase among shoppers in the over-60 age segment since May.

EUROPEAN UNION
Tuesday, July 07, 2020

The Pelagic Freezer-trawler Association (PFA) has extended an invitation to Greenpeace UK, pointing out that the NGO has published inaccurate and misleading information as part of its campaign group on fishing activity in Marine Protected Areas.

According to PFA president Gerard van Balsfoort, the report comes as an unwelcome surprise, not least as the Greenpeace UK report contradicts a Memorandum of Understanding the PFA and its member companies signed with Greenpeace in the Netherlands in August 2016, lasting for ten years.
