The University of Virginia and James Madison University recently became the first Aramark properties in the United States to be certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). The MSC Chain of Custody certification will allow U.Va. Dining to provide certified sustainable wild-caught seafood in three residential dining locations (Newcomb Hall’s Fresh Food Company, Runk, and O’Hill). The certification ensures that the seafood is never mixed or substituted with non-certified seafood at every step of the supply chain. Be on the lookout for dishes including cod, flounder, and pollock this fall, and you can be sure that it is a sustainable dining choice!  For more information:  MSC certification
