Origin Green is Ireland’s food and drink sustainability programme with a vision that Irish food and drink becomes the first choice globally because it is sustainably produced by people who care. It helps Ireland produce more food from less resources and makes great business sense.
With climbing energy costs, increased carbon regulation and social responsibility, plus frequent price hikes in global commodities, the demand for sustainable food and beverage producers worldwide has never been higher. International trade customers are actively seeking to align with a sustainable food and beverage supply chain, and Origin Green supports that common goal of sustainable food production.
