ARLINGTON, VA. — The Food Marketing Institute is developing guidelines, best practices, case studies and other resources to help the supermarket industry address sustainability issues.

The actions include F.M.I’s Sustainability Task Force forming a working group to identify issues that be resolved throughout the industry; its Sustainable Seafood Working Group gathering case studies of retailer best practices; as well as the Sustainable Seafood Working Group compiling a list of experts, certification and auditing bodies, government agencies and other resources retailers may consult with.

"We seek to provide a wide variety of seafood to help consumers maintain a healthy diet while also recognizing that sustaining the world’s fisheries is critical to preserving the environment," said Leslie G. Sarasin, president and chief executive officer of the F.M.I.

The F.M.I. has various other sustainability initiatives, including the F.M.I. Carbon Footprint Project, the F.M.I. Policy on Plastic Bag Waste and Litter, The Sustainability Opportunity for Retail and Wholesale Executives, and the Sustainability Starter Kit.
