Aramark Expands MSC Certification to 16 Canadian Universities and Colleges


TORONTO — Aramark has achieved Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Chain of Custody certification, allowing it to source and serve wild-caught seafood that is sustainable and traceable to a certified fishery and is rolling out the MSC program in 16 of its largest university and college accounts across the country.

“We are proud to be partnering with the Marine Stewardship Council to identify MSC-certified species on our menus through the use of the blue ecolabel,” says Scott Barnhart, SVP, Global Supply Chain & Procurement at Aramark. “We continue to grow the number of MSC-certified species on our menus as part of our commitment to responsible sourcing and we’re focusing on practices that help us educate and engage our consumers around this global issue.”
