Today we are introducing our new Responsible Choice Seafood label as well as going live with a sustainable seafood webpage and Seafoodies Blog.  Our efforts to provide more sustainable seafood are further described in today's press release.  Starting today, customers will see blue and green Responsible Choice signage on select products in our seafood case, representing products that are Green or Yellow rated by the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch Program, or certified to an environmental standard equivalent to these ratings, or are sourced from a credible, time bound improvement process.  The Responsible Choice label and our Responsible Seafood Commitment were developed in partnership with FishWise, a non-profit organization focused on supporting sustainability through environmentally responsible business practices.
