Carrefour Italia Increases Range Of MSC-Certified Products
Carrefour Italia has increased the number of MSC-certified seafood products that it offers to 19.
This includes seven frozen-fish SKUs, five canned fish SKUs, five chilled seafood specialties, and two frozen ready-meal SKUs.
All products are branded Carrefour, of which three fall under the Carrefour Séléction, including a smoked-salmon SKU and three packaged anchovy products.
The retailer is planning to increase its assortment of sustainable seafood products in 2019, with the launch of two new SKUs: grilled mackerel, in both olive oil and natural oil.
Marine Stewardship Council
The MSC-certified products are the result of Carrefour Italia’s collaboration with the Marine Stewardship Council, an international non-profit organisation whose mission is to keep the oceans full of life.
The collaboration enables the supermarket chain to offer consumers certified sustainable seafood products that guarantee healthy seas and, at the same time, help to protect fishing activities for future generations.
Carrefour Italia reports that it has been working alongside the MSC for several years on sustainable fishing projects.
