BATAVIA, Ill., May 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ALDI is ranked sixth on the Greenpeace 2012 Seafood Retailer Scorecard, climbing from seventh place on last year's ranking. The scorecard rates the seafood sustainability of grocery retailers nationwide.

The scorecard is part of Greenpeace's Carting Away the Oceans report, which has analyzed the practices of 20 top grocery retailers by measuring key seafood sustainability metrics since 2008. The report says that ALDI "continues to push forward in the development of what is becoming one of the country's leading sustainable seafood programs." It also recognizes ALDI as the first grocer in the United States to introduce comprehensive Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations catch area labeling on all fresh and frozen seafood products.

"We are so proud and honored to be named among the top 10 on Greenpeace's scorecard," said Jason Hart, president, ALDI.  "We work closely with the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership and Global Aquaculture Alliance, and we are committed to continuing to find the most effective ways to source sustainable seafood."
