Aussie first: Aldi joins Ocean Disclosure Project

Aldi has revealed that it is the first Australian supermarket to join the Ocean Disclosure Project (ODP).

The project means that Aldi will voluntarily disclose where its seafood products are sourced from.

“Our commitments mean that all of the fish and seafood sold at Aldi will be recognised by an independent third party as having been responsibly source,” Aldi Buying Director of Seafood Matthew Atley said.

“While the commitments have been driven by our responsibility to minimise our impact on the environment, we also recognise that Australians want to buy seafood that they know has been responsibly sourced.”

The retailer has shared a public profile on the ODP website, which lists all own-brand, wild caught seafood sourced by the business in 2018. Additionally, including information relating to fishery management, catch method and environmental impact.
