The Epicom Company has grown considerably over the years, now employing 300 staff in four locations around Ireland.  


Epicom Food Limited has always been proactive in encouraging and maintaining employee engagement and well-being. It believes in the importance of developing a workforce that is not only engaged in day-to-day work but is also involved in social sustainability initiatives like community support activities.


Within Epicom’s Origin Green plan, the company is taking an innovative approach to social sustainability. Each year, it focuses on delivering one significant initiative under different themes based on the company values.



The themes chosen in the previous plan were employee fitness and nutrition, local community group support and employee language development. Focusing on different themes helped keep the employee engagement programme fresh and relevant and retain staff interest.
