German Chains Score Poorly in Greenpeace Study
Published on Jan 5 2011 11:53 AM in Supply Chain
A study of the German retail landscape by Greenpeace has found that retailers should be doing more to ensure that their fish and seafood supply chains meet sustainability standards. The study was carried out to determine if German supermarkets were giving enough consideration to the future of fish supplies, examining whether customers could easily see where a fish was caught from the packaging.
While the Kaufland group fared well in the study of eleven supermarket groups, Kaiser’s Tengelmann and Aldi Nord came bottom of the table. Greenpeace first conducted a study of purchasing products for fish products in 2007, and the group believes that on the whole, such practices have improved, with some species being withdrawn from sale.
