Arthur Mallon Foods
Arthur Mallon Foods is the leading producer of sausages in Ireland, creating award winning sausages since 1942 from its home. The company originated from Arthur Mallon's Butchers shop in Monaghan Town, famous for its tasty and creative sausage recipes. Nowadays the third generation of craft butchers, Mallon's is still a family owned business, having won over 160 awards both nationally and internationally, making the company the most awarded sausage maker in Ireland. Quality and taste are at the heart of everything Mallon's does, with all its products being 100% Irish.
The sustainable, environmentally conscious use of resources is the basis of the
production process at Arthur Mallon Foods, ensuring that future generations can
continue live in a healthy, thriving environment. With this in mind, the company's
electricity intensity dropped from 189 kWh/tonne in 2020 to 170 kWh/tonne in 2021,
compared to a target milestone of 183 kWh/tonne. Exceeding this target is particularly
notable as product output was higher than anticipated throughout 2021 and despite
this, overall electricity use was still reduced.
Through its ongoing commitment to sustainability, the company engaged with Enterprise Ireland - an Origin Green partner, and the Pembroke Alliance, to initiate a Climate Action Report with the aim of driving further energy savings into the future. Working towards a Circular Economy with existing Waste streams: With an ongoing commitment to a sustainable ethos, Arthur Mallon Foods intend to implement a circular economy process on its site by installing a plastic baler and liaising with its supplier, Shabra. Shabra will produce black plastic garbage bags from the waste generated, which Arthur Mallon Foods will then purchase for use on site.
