Discover Sustainable Seafood with Aldi and MSC for Middle Schoolers
This Sustainable Seafood September, Aldi has teamed up with the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) to show you how to enjoy seafood while caring for the environment.
Tips for Thoughtful Seafood Shopping
Learn from Liz Fox, Aldi UK’s Corporate Responsibility Director, and MSC experts on how to make smart seafood choices. Here are some easy ways to do just that:
Try Something New
Why not venture beyond your usual seafood choices? Exploring different types of fish can be exciting. By doing so, you support sustainable fishing practices. The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) ensures the highest standards for these seafood options.
Embrace the Blue Label
When you see the blue Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) ecolabel on seafood products, you’re choosing sustainable options. Aldi proudly carries this label on many products, making it the top seller of certified sustainable seafood in UK supermarkets last year.
Canned Fish Delights
Don’t underestimate the power of canned fish! People all over, from TikTok enthusiasts to food lovers, are loving the convenience and taste of canned fish dishes. Aldi offers a range of canned seafood, including salmon and tuna, with the blue MSC ecolabel.
Frozen vs. Fresh
You might have heard people debate whether frozen fish is as good as fresh. The truth is, freezing doesn’t make fish less tasty or nutritious. Opting for MSC certified frozen fish is a smart choice. It reduces food waste and allows you to plan delicious meals. Aldi has countless recipes to help you cook fantastic frozen fish dishes.
Swap Your Favorites
If you’re a fan of popular fish like cod, haddock, tuna, salmon, or prawns, that’s great! But consider exploring lesser-known alternatives that are equally delicious and sustainable. Pollock, for instance, is a fantastic whitefish option available at Aldi. It’s part of the same family as cod and can be enjoyed in various dishes.
Enjoy Shellfish Wisdom
Cooking shellfish is easy, and they can be an ocean-friendly choice if they’re MSC certified. You don’t need to dine in fancy restaurants to enjoy them; you can find them at affordable prices in supermarkets. Mussels are a top pick because they’re low in carbon footprint and contribute to a healthier ocean environment.
Aldi and the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) are dedicated to helping you make seafood choices that are kind to the planet and delicious on your plate. So go ahead, explore new flavors and enjoy sustainable seafood!
