Aramark transitions to Wild Alaska Pollock to help meet demand for environmentally-friendly protein options.
Seafood Source reports that the United States facilities manager Aramark is sourcing more wild salmon and pollock and is utilizing a new technology to help track its seafood purchases.
Erin Noss, director of media relations for Aramark, told Seafood Source, “We’re featuring wild-caught (fish) from state waters of Alaska by fisheries certified as sustainably managed against the MSC standard.”
Aramark is also now utilizing Wild Alaska Pollock in dishes such as its Spicy Fish Tacos, Baked Chili-Lime Pollock, and Baked Coconut Crusted Pollock with Red Curry Sauce.
The company said it is supporting oceans globally on two main fronts: Watching what comes out of the water, as well as what goes in.
The move will also help move the company closer to its goal to reduce its environmental impact.
