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.
