On Farm

Origin Green has a unique role to play across the agrifood sector, in collaboration with farmers and producers.

The benefits of Origin Green are more environmentally aware farms, an important focus on community and more sustainable food and drink production which ultimately contribute to sustainable livelihoods. This is what makes Ireland’s food and drink produce the first choice globally; it is trusted as sustainably produced by people who care.

Origin Green membership and practices ensures that products are more competitive in the global agrifood market, which offers a direct benefit to farmers.

Origin Green offers practical guidance and advice to inform farmers on how to become more sustainable, primarily through the Farmer Feedback Report which was an important support introduced in 2019. Bord Bia is also currently working on a Farm Sustainability Programme (FSP). This is an ambitious programme designed to facilitate a national, unified approach to sustainability improvement on Irish farms.

Bord Bia’s three-year strategy for Origin Green has been informed by data and insight commissioned specifically from the farming community. Primary producers are the foundation of sustainable food and drink production, and their insight forms a critical part of the Origin Green programme.
