Wegmans ranks sixth among 20 brands in the second canned tuna ranking published by Greenpeace USA. Brands were ranked according to sustainable and ethical sourcing.
Wild Planet and American Tuna tied for the top score. Both brands are carried at Wegmans; Wild Planet also is sold at Hart’s Local Grocers, Abundance Coop and Lori’s Natural Foods, according to the Wild Planet website.
The rankings reflect whether the fishing methods harm other marine life, whether shark finning is avoided and whether products can be traced back to the sea. (Shark finning involves cutting the highly profitable fins from live sharks and discarding the sharks back into the ocean.)
