Seafood Sustainability

As one of the country’s largest grocers, Safeway recognizes its 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 all our fresh and frozen seafood to be responsibly caught or farmed, or from sources making credible improvements, by the end of 2015.

We offer seafood that already meets our 2015 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 neighborhood Safeway store, you can feel proud to be making a healthy decision for you, your family and the environment.
