Ballymaloe Foods Gains Origin Green Gold Membership
We are excited to announce that our team has gained Gold Membership status for 2023 in Bord Bia’s sustainability programme, Origin Green.
The Origin Green sustainability programme sets measurable sustainability targets for the full supply chain of food and drink from farmers to food producers, through to the food service and retail sectors.
Origin Green Gold Membership is awarded to companies that perform exceptionally well in areas such as sourcing raw materials, water and energy efficiency, waste reduction, and social. We are delighted to be named one of these companies.
We have a strong ethos of sustainability, and in recent years have increased the number of our suppliers with sustainability accreditation, as well as reduced overall waste by almost a fifth since 2018.
Our company also partnered with charity Alone last year, with 10 cent from every jar with a special label going to the organisation, while a donation of a pallet of pasta sauce valued at over €2,000 was made to Spillane Bros haulage company, who transported food and medical supplies to Ukraine after the outbreak of the war there.
General manager of Ballymaloe Foods Maxine Hyde said that her team are “so happy to be recognised by Origin Green with a Gold standard”.
“This is a measure at this point in time, and we look forward to continuing the vital journey with our consumers, our trading partners and our team. We will be relentless in our pursuit of delivering these initiatives while delivering good value for our customers,” she said.
