Pulling Back the Curtain
Just like with land-based agriculture, there are many different practices used in aquaculture, though consumers often only hear about the ones that have negative impacts. Our strict standards for farm-raised seafood require practices that support healthy marine, coastal, and inland ecosystems.
But that’s only part of the story. It’s the people behind the products that make the real difference! Meet some of the passionate suppliers and Whole Foods Market Team Members who are dedicated to moving the seafood industry forward.
“Things have changed, and people are looking for food that they know where it’s coming from. One thing that standards do, for us, is they allow us to transparently state what our expectations are.”
Carrie Brownstein, Principal Quality Standards Advisor, Whole Foods Market
