H-E-B Enhances Partnership With EDF to Strengthen Seafood Policy

H-E-B and EDF are reeling in some big news.

The San Antonio-based retailer, in partnership with Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), a prominent, international conservation organization, has strengthened its commitment to create an industry-leading sustainability program dedicated to sourcing top-quality seafood from socially and environmentally responsible fisheries and farms.

This commitment draws from EDF’s expertise and H-E-B’s longstanding efforts to continually improve its sourcing standards and transparency for all fresh, frozen, prepared and shelf-stable seafood. With this robust sustainability partnership in place since 2012, H-E-B’s updated policy enhances efforts to better source certified wild-caught and farmed seafood; expand traceability systems for all seafood products; combat human rights abuses in seafood supply chains and support workers’ rights; and promote environmental and ethical integrity within its canned tuna supply.
