CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa — IKEA has announced that seafood sold and served in its stores comes from sustainable and responsible sources. With more than 23 different ASC and MSC certified species across stores in 47 markets —including salmon, herring and shrimp— IKEA is the foodservice provider offering the largest variety of certified seafood globally.
IKEA is also making certified seafood available to consumers in eight new markets, such as such as Turkey, Thailand and the Middle East, where it has not been available before.
“I am really proud that our customers can enjoy tasty fish that has been responsibly produced by people with good working conditions,” says Michael La Cour, managing director of IKEA Food Services AB. “This is a result of our high ambitions and commitment regarding the whole value chain; from fisheries and farms to training of our co-workers and certification of the restaurants.”
