Internationally the demand for sustainable food product has grown. It is our aim to ensure we use the most sustainable raw material available and work with suppliers who have the environment and sustainability high on their agendas.
A number of our supplies are participating in the Origin Green sustainability programme; designed to allow suppliers to set and achieve measurable sustainability targets the programme helps them reduce environmental impact and achieve efficiencies in their day-to-day operations.
For primary producers the Origin Green programme buildings on the existing Bord Bia Meat Producer Quality Assurance scheme by measuring carbon footprint, water, biodiversity, energy efficiency and socio-economic factors at a farm level.
