Hy-Vee is working toward offering 100% Fair Trade tuna by partnering with Anova to supply our fresh seafood cases, sushi shops and Market Grille restaurants.
Fair Trade Certified products are acquired with respect for people and our planet. When customers purchase a product with the Fair Trade Certified label, they can be sure that the fishermen and workers who produced it received a fair deal for their hard work. This means better prices and wages, safer working conditions, environmental protection, and additional funds to invest in community projects like education, health care and clean water.
Fair Trade USA informed us that Hy-Vee is the only retailer that is pursuing an effort of this scale. To learn more about Fair Trade tuna and the process behind the product, check out this short video about a small-scale handline-caught tuna fishing in Indonesia.
