Co-op honored as sustainable seafood retailer

By

The Davis Food Co-op has been recognized as one of the most sustainable seafood retailers in California, according to Greenpeace’s updated seafood sustainability scorecard “Carting Away the Oceans,” which was released this month.

Of California’s top six sustainable seafood retailers, the Davis Food Co-op earned a score of 8.6, tying for third statewide. To see the scorecards for all California grocery stores, visit http://s.coop/seafood and select “California.”

“Values and education have always been at the forefront of the cooperative movement, so it is no surprise that food Co-ops are leaders among California retailers when it comes to sourcing and selling seafood in a sustainable way, as well as educating our shoppers about the impact of their seafood choices on the health of our oceans,” said Eric Stromberg, general manager of the Davis Food Co-op, in a news release.

Part of the Co-op’s commitment to sustainable seafood involves partnering with FishWise, a nonprofit focused on improving the sustainability of seafood retailers. The Co-op has partnered with FishWise since 2005 and through this collaboration has been able to implement a comprehensive sustainable seafood policy that includes training staff, providing customers with point-of-sale information, sourcing responsibly and supporting fishery and aquaculture reform.

The Davis Food Co-op is a full line, member-owned supermarket specializing in natural, organic and minimally processed foods. The Co-op is open to the general public to shop and join. Members pay the shelf price while nonmembers pay a 5 percent surcharge. For more information, call the Co-op at (530) 758-2667.
