Thanks guys. The Gourmet Butcher
It is Spring time now and the pods are forming in our flowers. Always an exciting time on the farm.
Watch how our rapeseed oil is made from start to finish.
Three years ago, Bord Bia, in conjunction with the Irish food and drink industry, launched Origin Green, a bold promise to the world: that Ireland would be a leading source of sustainably produced food and drink, independently verified at every link in the supply chain. And every day since, we are making good on that promise.
How it works
On-farm assessments constitute a key component of the Origin Green programme. The rollout of sustainability assessments at farm level has been made possible by Bord Bia’s pre-existing Quality Assurance infrastructure, which has been in place for over twenty years. Traditionally, these assessments have focused on traceability, animal health & welfare, and general environmental issues, with an overarching focus on food safety. All of these elements are still relevant from a sustainability perspective. The Sustainable Assurance Schemes expands the scope and depth of sustainability measures tracked in order to ensure that Origin Green delivers an assessment system which measures what matters.
