  City Market Jobs Focus on Sustainability
Those with City Market jobs (Click here) are doing their part to make our fishing industry more sustainable.

On the heels of a Greenpeace report that named the Kroger Company 15th for its seafood sustainability efforts, the company has announced the next phase of its partnership with the World Wildlife Fund. Kroger supports many Denver jobs (Click here) throughout its King Soopers and City Market stores.

For more than a year, Kroger has been working with WWF to conduct an internal analysis on the company's seafood supply, with an overall goal of developing new ways to improve the sustainability of its seafood buying practices and standards.

That analysis found that more than 50 percent of the top 20 wild-caught seafood species sold by Kroger comes from sources certified by the Marine Stewardship Council. Kroger hopes to source 100 percent of its top-selling seafood from these sources by 2015.

"Kroger is enthusiastic about this goal and what it will mean for our customers," Mark Van Buskirk, vice president of meat and seafood merchandising for Kroger, said in a statement. "We want to ensure that our customers and their children can enjoy fresh, sustainable seafood for generations to come."

Kroger is further working with WWF to support the Ecuadorian mahi mahi and Indonesian yellowfin tuna fisheries, which support local fishermen, communities, suppliers and consumers. The company also has decided to stop selling shark, marlin, or bluefin tuna because of sustainability concerns.

"As one of the largest traditional food retailers in the U.S., the Kroger family of stores plays an important role by working with the seafood industry on important sustainability practices," Bill Fox, vice president and managing director of WWF's fisheries program, said. "Commitments like this are essential to achieving our conservation goals for healthy oceans."
