ABP Food Group

“Sustainability for us extends across the supply chain, beyond the environment, carbon footprint, water consumption, packaging and waste reductions to also include on farm sustainability which is essential to the future of the industry, and animal welfare. The Origin Green approach is the right strategy at this time. It resonates with customers internationally and puts Ireland at the vanguard of doing business sustainably. And at the end of the day, sustainable business is good business.”

Achill Oysters

“Growing up on Achill Island you get to understand how the environment and you interact. The impact of a storm or a discarded food wrapper were obvious. It wasn’t until I was studying for my under grad that I found the idea of sustainability to what you do naturally living on the edge of the Atlantic.

When Bord Bia and Bord Iascigh Mhara mentioned Origin Green we jumped at the idea of putting structure to what we were already doing. We work hard to minimise our impact upon the environment. We support our community and our employees in a manner that we foresee providing lasting benefit.

I believe it is essential to mix traditional low impact methods of working with nature with cutting edge technology to offer a bright future to those coming behind us.”

This is the central philosophy of our sustainability strategy, plans and measures – to learn from past but also be open to new technologies. Just one example is how we still generate power from the nearby river Mahon and in recent years began to use our by-product to generate the steam necessary to cook the oats in our process and reduce our reliance on oil. Our early participation in the Origin Green Sustainability Development Programme is a welcome framework for the alignment of our sustainability plans.”
