Our Sustainability Plan
At Kinsale Bay Food Company, we believe that if we make fundamental changes now we will create a long-term business model that can ensure sustainability well into the future. This will advance our commitment to the environment, best practices and social responsibility.
We have committed to a 3-year Origin Green sustainability plan in which we have implemented new procedures and practices which ensure we as a company understand our role in the future of our environment. We have undertaken to improve in areas such as energy consumption, water usage, waste management, recycling, social and community responsibility and health and nutrition.
All our fish and dairy is sourced sustainably. Our dairy is SDAS approved. Our Fish is sourced sustainably from suppliers who operate a sustainable fisheries policy which entails supplying species in season, sustainably caught under quota from inshore Irish fishermen. They also conform with the MCS Fishonline ratings.
In our first year, with just a few changes in production procedures and mind-set, we have reduced our electricity by 17%, our waste by 30% and our recycling by 27%. This is just the beginning and our sustainability journey will continue.
To provide us with an essential framework to support and verify our sustainability strategy and plans, we have become verified members of the Bord Bia Origin Green Programme.
