Greenpeace Only blesses 3 out of 14 Foodservice Companies - the Three that Agreed to Talk to Them
SEAFOODNEWS.COM [News Analysis] by John Sackton - August 24, 2016
Greenpeace released its first report on Foodservice companies use of seafood, saying "Ocean Destruction Comes from Foodservice."
The hollowness of the campaign is illustrated by the fact that only 3 out of 14 companies agreed to speak to Greenpeace, and those were the only companies given a "passing" grade. They were Sodexo, Compass, and Aramark.
The others -- Sysco, US Foods, Performance Group, Delaware North, Gordon Foodservices, Reinhart, Food Services of America, Shamrock Foods, Maines Paper and Foodservice, AVI Food Systems, Centerplate and Elior North America all refused to talk to Greenpeace.
The report is largely focused on tuna, and on attacking the Thai Union Group. Greenpeace is involved in other campaigns to shut down purse seine and longline tuna fishing, including all tuna caught using FADs.Full Story »
