Interview: Talking to Darden Restaurants on Sustainable Seafood

| Wednesday October 16th, 2013 | 0 Comments


darden-brandsDarden restaurants is parent company to Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Capital Grille and other up-market chain restaurants. As a result, they serve over 1 million meals a day across North America – that’s a lot of food and a large potential resource footprint. We’ve heard from Brandon Tidwell, Darden’s Manager of Sustainability, from time to time as a guest poster on 3p and I finally had a chance to sit down with him and chat.

Darden has already almost met recent goals to reduce water and energy use by 15 percent by 2015. I talked to Brandon a bit about what comes next. Secondly, we talked a bit about seafood. As one of the world’s largest buyers of seafood, Darden has the opportunity to have tremendous impact on the seafood supply chain.

Hear what Brandon had to say in the video below…
