Dawn Meats are proud to have been awarded Origin Green Gold membership by Bord Bia for a second consecutive year in 2022.

Now into its tenth year, Origin Green is Ireland’s food and drink sustainability programme led by Bord Bia – The Irish Food Board, uniting food producers, manufacturers, and retailers.

Dawn Meats has been actively involved in the Origin Green program since its inception. As a founding Origin Green member, we have progressively submitted more ambitious annual targets since its first plan in 2012.

Dawn Meats has now retained the prestigious Gold membership award for 2022 by surpassing targets and scoring exemplary for initiatives related to raw material sourcing, water and energy efficiency, waste, packaging and community engagement.

This award is testament to the hard work and dedication of many team members who have contributed with enthusiasm to the underlying actions taken on behalf of all of us, and in writing the annual Origin Green report, which details the progress made on our sustainability plan.

Commenting on the achievement, Gill Higgins, Head of Sustainability said: “We are proud to have retained Origin Green Gold Membership for a second consecutive year and would like thank our team members, suppliers and customers, who’s collaboration and dedication have made this achievement possible. Congratulations to all Gold Membership holders, working together through Origin Green, we help to maintain Ireland’s leadership position in sustainable food production”.
