Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) is pleased to announce a new partnership with a major retailer’s Spanish subsidiary.

Lidl Supermercados, a subsidiary of German retailer Lidl, has been operating since 1994 and operates 540 stores throughout Spain. It is the fifth-largest supermarket chain in the country.

Sustainability is key in Lidl Spain’s business strategy. The company is committed to a goal of 35 percent of its seafood sources being certified as sustainable by the end of 2017 from organizations such as the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC). The company was the first distributor in Spain to collaborate with the MSC and has been working with them since 2008. Right now, the supermarket chain has the highest ratio of sources certified as sustainable.
