We are committed to sourcing 100% of our own-brant permanent fresh and frozen fish products, as well as fish used as an ingredient in our products, from independently certified sustainable fisheries (MSC, ASC, BAP, Global Gap). Through our commitment to Ocean Disclosure Project, we are transparently reporting our efforts on an annual basis.
At Lidl UK, the principles of responsible fish and seafood sourcing are led from ensuring that the fish sold within our product ranges are sourced from the healthiest stocks possible using the least destructive fishing methods possible, with high regard for both environmental and social standards.
Safe guarding fish stocks for the future is an issue we are passionate about and we are proud of the progress we have made. We recognise the importance of effective management in achieving sustainable fisheries and responsible farm operations.
We want to be a global leader in sourcing fish responsibly, building on the progress we have made in the UK and across our international network. We’re committed to making sure that, no matter how our fish is sourced, whether farmed or caught wild, it comes from the most sustainable and well-managed fisheries and farms. You can find out where we source our fish from here.
Our commitment is to source 100% of our fresh and frozen own-brand fish and seafood products from sustainable sources by the end of 2018. In doing this, we recognise a range of trusted independent certification schemes. Our wild-caught fish must be sourced from Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) fisheries and all farmed fish must be sourced from farms that meet the standards set by the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC), GLOBALG.A.P Aquaculture Standard or Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) Certification.
Sustainable Seafood Coalition
We are a member of the Sustainable Seafood Coalition (SSC), which means we have committed to implementing two codes within our seafood supply chains:
- The Responsible Sourcing Code
- The Environmental Labelling Code
These codes are tools for change and contribute to the vision that all fish and seafood sold in the UK comes from sustainable sources.
