IKEA makes global commitment to serve sustainable seafood
IKEA has become the biggest food service provider of certified seafood worldwide.
With a commitment for seafood sold and served in its stores to be both ASC1 and MSC2 certified, the Swedish retailer is set to offer sustainably sourced seafood to over 600m customers in 47 countries worldwide.
The seafood offering from IKEA includes over 23 different certified seafood species including salmon, herring and shrimp.
“IKEA is demonstrating global leadership in sustainability," commented Nicolas Guichoux, global commercial director, Marine Stewardship Council (MSC).
"By sourcing and selling only certified sustainable seafood, IKEA is powerfully inspiring consumer choices and influencing sustainable business practices around the world. IKEA's significant commitment is already helping to ensure oceans teeming with life, and secure seafood supplies, for future generations.”
