To reach these goals, the REWE Group requires that its suppliers, including its fish suppliers, meet the International Labour Organization’s core labour standards in order to ensure the safeguarding of human rights and the adherence to social performance and occupational safety standards along the entire supply chain. In addition, all processing plants in risk countries must prove that they regularly submit to social auditing in accordance with standards such as amfori BSCI, and that they therefore meeting minimum social performance requirements. When procuring wild fish species to be sold, the REWE Group adheres to a positive list that systematically assesses the health of fish stocks, the recommendations of leading environmental organizations (such as the WWF), the fishing gear used, any existing certifications and – in the case of certain species – potential social risks. In aquaculture, fish is procured from certified sources (certified organic farms, GLOBALG.A.P., and ASC) in order to ensure, among other things, that fish and shrimp farms meet all the statutory requirements in the country of production. The REWE Group also requires that its suppliers be able to disclose all details concerning their entire supply chain if asked to do so.
