For over 10 years, we’ve been working with our suppliers and wider industry partners to guide our buying practices, to shape a more sustainable fishing industry and safeguard future supplies. We are proud to offer independently certified sustainable fish and seafood from: MSC (Marine Stewardship Council), ASC (Aquaculture Stewardship Council), BAP (Best Aquaculture Practices) and Global Gap.
Fishery Improvement Projects
Project UK is a collaboration between the fishing sector, NGO’s and the seafood supply chain, aiming to improve the sustainability of UK fisheries, through implementing Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs). The FIPs enable continuous progression and advance fisheries to meet the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) standards through bespoke action plans which address improvement areas.
At Lidl GB we encourage suppliers to support FIPs as part of their sustainability strategy and risk assessment procedures. In 2018 we made a 5-year commitment to contribute towards the funding of the Project UK Fisheries Improvements Stage 2 (PUKFI S2) project. This project will support the long-term sustainable sourcing of Nephrops in the North Sea (Northern NS and Southern NS), Irish Sea and West of Scotland.
