Our, neighbors, communities, and the world we live in, mean a great deal to Jewel-Osco – we strive to be a responsible steward of them all. Jewel-Osco provides quality food by supporting sustainable practices for our environment. Where we can, we source products from local growers and providers. As we monitor global food sustainability issues, predominantly in regards to responsible fishing in our oceans, we make assortment decisions in the seafood we offer. Our decisions involve the use of Wild Caught and Farm-Raised seafood.
- Wild-caught seafood is caught from wild sources such as oceans, lakes and rivers.
- Farm-raised seafood, also known as “Aquaculture” is a practice in which farmers raise freshwater and saltwater fish in enclosed, sustainable tanks.
