Glanbia Ireland awarded Gold Membership by Origin Green
Origin Green is Ireland’s pioneering food and drink sustainability programme, and the world’s only national food and drink sustainability programme of its kind. It enables the industry to set and achieve measurable sustainability targets that respect the environment and serve local communities more effectively.
In 2015 Glanbia Ingredients, as it was then known, became the first company to win the Origin Green Sustainability Award and now again in 2020, as Glanbia Ireland, we have achieved another first as we are among the first companies to achieve Gold status. There are 324 Origin Green members and Gold member status has been awarded to just 26 of those involved.
At a time of significant challenge for the global food sector, sustainability remains a key issue for retail and foodservice customers across the globe who procure Irish food and drink produce.
The awarding of Origin Green Gold Standard clearly demonstrates Glanbia Ireland’s position as a recognised leader in sustainability. We hold strong sustainability ambitions, and with the support of our farmer suppliers, our customers and Bord Bia, we will continue to build on our strong foundations for the future.
