In the 2nd Edition of their Sea of Distress report, Greenpeace surveyed 15 key foodservice businesses and found a few were leading the way toward protecting the oceans and those that work at sea. While the majority of those assessed failed yet again, three companies stood out. Sodexo, Aramark, and Compass Group have made significant efforts towards sustainable seafood, reducing their reliance on plastic, promoting better practices at sea, and committing to transparency.
Greenpeace Oceans Campaigner David Pinksy said, “It is a good sign that some key foodservice companies are moving in the right direction on sustainability for our oceans and the ethical treatment of workers. Unfortunately, there are still large companies holding back progress. Massive distributors like Sysco and US Foods must work urgently to help protect ocean health and workers’ rights throughout the supply chain.”
With 700 billion dollars in annual sales, the foodservice industry in the US accounts for nearly half of all food-dollar spending outside of the home each day. The foodservice industry has a massive impact on the health of the environment and its workers. Clients include a wide array of entities, such as Congress, Walmart, Disney World, Florida State University, Burger King, Google, and National Parks.
