Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise program is pleased to welcome a new national partner, Sodexo Canada, which provides a variety of services, including catering and foodservices, at nearly 750 locations across Canada, such as at hospitals, educational institutions, hotels, and other businesses and organizations.
Sodexo Canada’s launch as an Ocean Wise partner elevates the company’s commitment to providing sustainable seafood options to its clients all throughout Canada. In its sustainable seafood policy, Sodexo has made a commitment to source sustainable seafood in all the countries they operate in by 2015. It has also committed to not serving seafood species at risk.
With a shared commitment to the health of our oceans, this partnership is a natural fit, and will support Sodexo in its sustainability goals. The Ocean Wise team will be working closely with Sodexo to review its menus and catalogues and provide recommendations, including ocean-friendly seafood species and Ocean Wise suppliers who are able to source sustainable products.
Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise program is a national seafood sustainability program committed to educating consumers about the issues surrounding sustainable seafood. Look for the Ocean Wise symbol next to a seafood item for Vancouver Aquarium’s assurance of an ocean-friendly seafood choice.
