Salmon not sus­tain­able says Co-op

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - News -

A SU­PER­MAR­KET chain is to drop claims that its Scot­tish salmon is from ‘sus­tain­able sources’.

Co-op Food had used the word­ing on its sand­wiches and wraps – but will keep say­ing it is ‘re­spon­si­bly sourced’.

Cam­paign­ers at An­i­mal Con­cern Advice Line told Coop bosses that up to five tons of wild fish are used as food to pro­duce one ton of Scot­tish salmon, mak­ing the sus­tain­able la­bel un­true.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion’s John Robins said: ‘Farmed salmon is not sus­tain­able and should not be de­scribed as such.’

A spokesman for the Co-op said: ‘We apol­o­gise for this mis­take and will be al­ter­ing the word­ing on our sand­wich pack­ag­ing.’
