We provide clear and transparent information for our customers by labelling 100% of our fish products with:
• Common and scientific name of the fish species
• Fishing method and fishing area (wild caught fish)
• Production method and country of origin (farmed fish)
Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs)
Aldi UK and Ireland works to improve both environmental sustainability and social standards on fishing vessels and throughout production. We work with our suppliers to identify potential Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs), as well as launching and actively participating in FIPs directly.
We launched our own FIP in the waters off the coast of Morocco to improve the sustainability of our canned sardines. We are doing this in collaboration with SFP, local government and fisheries.
The project aims to help fisheries along the Moroccan coast to establish sustainable fishery practices, using the MSC criteria as a benchmark.

Asia Reduction Fisheries Supplier Roundtable
We are also a participant of the Asia Reduction Fisheries Supplier Roundtable, a collection of international brands, manufacturers and retailers committed to improving fishing practices in Southeast Asia.
The roundtable focuses on issues such as improving fisheries management and reducing the impact on the environment. The roundtable also works to eliminate illegal fishing and prevent human rights abuses in the seafood industry.
