Responsible Seafood

As one of the country’s largest grocers, we recognize our responsibility to protect our natural resources. Protecting our oceans is critical for maintaining the availability of seafood for future generations and the health of our planet. We set a progressive, industry-leading goal for our seafood to be responsibly caught or farmed, or from sources making credible improvements.

We offer seafood that already meets our goal. Look for items marked “Responsible Choice” while you shop. That means they are considered a “Best Choice” or a “Good Alternative” by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® program, or they are certified to an equal standard. When you purchase “Responsible Choice” seafood from your favorite local supermarket, you can feel proud to be making a healthy decision for you, your family and the environment.

Albertsons Companies Fulfills Pledge to End Use of Eel (Unagi) in Sushi 3½ Years Ahead of Planned Deadline
Albertsons Companies, an industry leader in seafood sustainability, announced today that it completed the phase-out of freshwater eel (unagi) from sushi products 3½ years ahead of its self-imposed deadline of year-end 2022.
The nation’s second-largest supermarket company vowed in 2018 to eliminate the popular product because wild eel populations are in dangerous decline and the process of raising farmed eel is equally unsustainable for the species and the oceans.

Albertsons Companies Marks World Oceans Day by Taking Actions to Fulfill our Pledge to End Use of Eel in Sushi
At Albertsons Companies, we do a lot of work behind the scenes to ensure that we are providing responsibly sourced seafood products as part of our Responsible Seafood Program. Following our January 2018 announcement to remove eel from our sushi products, we immediately started working with our sushi vendors to discontinue the use of eel in sushi sold at our stores. In addition, our employees are working hard to audit each of our stores to make sure we phase out eel as quickly as possible.
