Walmart has developed a strategy for sourcing sustainable tuna, part of its ongoing efforts to support ethical business practices:
“The MSC fisheries standard requires that fishing organizations ensure enough fish is left in the sea to reproduce indefinitely, that their catch practices have a minimal environmental impact and that processes be closely managed. As part of its strategy, by 2025, Walmart will require all of its canned light and white tuna suppliers to source from fisheries that are third-party certified as sustainable. Tuna is a $50 billion a year global industry and as a grocer, Walmart has a large role to play in transforming the market.”
P.S. Suppliers that support green initiatives and that produce sustainable products have a great future with Walmart. 8th & Walton’s experts can guide you. Book an appointment today.
