ALDI Australia has announced it is the first Australian retailer to join the Ocean Disclosure Project (ODP) to voluntarily disclose where ALDI Australia’s wild caught seafood products are sourced.
As part of the global platform, ALDI will share a list of the fisheries used to source its seafood products in 2018, including catch method, certification status and environmental impact.
This transparency is part of ALDI’s wider commitment to ensure all ALDI own-brand fish and seafood will be responsibly sourced by the end of 2020.
“Our commitments mean that all of the fish and seafood sold at ALDI will be recognised by an independent third party as having been responsibly sourced,” Aldi’s Buying Director of Seafood Matthew Atley said.
“While the commitments have been driven by our responsibility to minimise our impact on the environment, we also recognise that Australians want to buy seafood that they know has been responsibly sourced.”
