Sustainability

Sustainability is important to us. We recognise that working in a key part of the food industry, socially responsible products and practices are not only good for the environment but are also essential for doing business for the long term. We understand there needs to be a holistic perspective with supply chain processes and technologies, that goes beyond the focus of delivery, inventory and traditional views of cost.

Some areas we focus on:

Sourcing

We are committed to responsible sourcing in order to protect Ireland’s natural resources and preserve the future of our food industry for the generations to come.

Quality Assurance

Being fully HACCAP compliant and committed to quality assurance means our customers can be confident we have the knowledge, processes and systems in place to provide high standards of quality in our products.

Recycling

We are committed to recycling as much as possible. As a member of REPAK, we separate and recycle cardboard. All plastic and organic waste is also segregated for recycling. All organic waste are segregated from general waste and is either recycled or disposed of appropriately through an approved licensed external food waste specialist contractor.  Used/old IT appliances are donated to the Lions Club of Ireland who utilize components and equipment to assist and educate.

Charity Partner

A result of modern food production, distribution and consumption systems means there is always some food that does not reach consumers. The precise reasons vary but include; short-dated stock, overproduction, and unsold food. This is the surplus food we donate to the Food Cloud Initiative and Food for Simon.
