Rosauers Supermarkets, Inc. yesterday joined the roster of more than 4,500 grocery stores and restaurants that participate in the ProtectSeals campaign to help end Canada's commercial seal hunt.
"As a company, our mission is to provide the highest quality products to our customers," said Jeff Phillips, president and c.e.o. of Rosauers. "We feel that participating in this campaign furthers that mission."
In an effort to stop the annual slaughter of baby harp seals off the east coast of Canada, Rosauers has pledged not to sell any Canadian seafood from the seal-hunting provinces in its grocery stores until Canada ends its commercial seal hunt for good.
Other participating companies include WinCo Foods, PCC Natural Markets, Whole Foods Markets, Trader Joe's, Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville CafEs, Ted Turner's steakhouse chain - Ted's Montana Grill, Harris Teeter, and Bon AppEtit Management Company.
Rosauers operates more than 20 stores in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington under the Rosauers Food & Drug, Super 1 Foods, and Huckleberry's Natural Market banners.
