According to an article in Nation’s Restaurant News, both McDonald’s and Red Lobster Restaurants are “making waves” by opting for sustainable seafood for their menus.
According to the article:
“McDonald’s Corp. said that 100 percent of all fish sold in its U.S. restaurants as the Filet-O-Fish sandwich and the upcoming Fish McBites limited-time offer has earned certification as sustainable from the Marine Stewardship Council, or MSC.
The move will allow McDonald’s to become the first restaurant chain in the United States to use the MSC’s blue “eco-label” on all its packaging, in-store promotional material and external advertising.”
Darden owned Red Lobster Restaurant has also made major investments in sustainable sourcing, including its support for farm-raised seafood as a founder of the Global Aquaculture Alliance.
