Aramark's Sustainable Seafood Pledge
Aramark announced it will be working with the Monterey Bay Aquarium to source sustainable seafood. Aramark is one of the largest food management services in the United States. I have worked for them and to the best of my knowledge with maybe the exception of shrimp, seafood is a very small amount of purchases. All that aside it is good that they are making an effort, because even if seafood only accounts for a small percentage of unit sales. Typical units are convention centers, sports arenas, jails, schools, health care, and business dining. The volume of sales translate that small percentage into tons of seafood. As a seafood distributor I would love to be a preferred vendor.
