The Eroski distribution chain exceeds 1,651 tons in its purchases of sustainable fish with MSC and GlobalGAP certification. It is the first retail distribution chain in Spain to pass audits of both certifications for the sale of sustainable fresh fish at the counter.
Of the total, 1,096 tons correspond to sustainable fish with the MSC seal that Eroski sells canned, frozen and under its own brand Eroski Natur in the case of fresh fish, and 555 tons with GlobalGAP.
“Seafood with a sustainability certificate is gaining space in our fishmongers. We thus offer guarantees to the consumer that the fresh fish with ecolabel that he finds in our counters comes from sustainable fisheries and productions. At Eroski we ensure that all processes, from the origin of production to store operations, are as responsible as possible. The promotion of a more sustainable diet is the object of our ten Commitments in Health and Sustainability,” said the director of Health and Sustainability of Eroski, Alejandro Martínez Berriochoa.
The certification of the Eroski's fishmongers has been progressive and currently reaches 342 counters of fresh fish, as well as eight logistic platforms of the group from which fresh fish is served to its network of stores.
