Gold Medal for Origin Green Certification kinsale Mead

Delighted to receive a Gold Medal Award for our Origin Green sustainability certification at an event in Dublin run by Bord Bia – The Irish Food Board. We’ve put a huge amount of work into making sure we are as sustainable as we can be and using the Origin Green framework and tool kits to develop and measurable plans to improve our sustainability year on year.

As we listen to what is coming out of COP28, it’s clear both at a personal, business and community level, that we have a huge challenge ahead of us to reduce the impact we have on the planet. It was great to meet fellow travellers at the event and share ideas and learnings. Congrats to all those companies big and small who achieved Gold medal status and to the Origin Green team at Bord Bia.

Origin Green is Ireland’s pioneering food and drink sustainability programme, operating on a national scale and run by Bord Bia. It’s an independently audited certification using lots (and lots !) of measurable data across energy, water, raw materials, waste, biodiversity and community engagement. It is the worlds’ only national food and drink sustainability programme, and enables the industry to set and achieve measurable sustainability targets that respect the environment and serve local communities.
