The World Is Hungry For Food Sustainability

Saoirse Ronan speaks out on Ireland’s legacy of sustainable farming and the future role it has in providing the world with responsibly sourced food and drink.

Ireland is on a mission to become a world leader in sustainably produced food and drink. With Origin Green, a pioneering national sustainable development programme launched by The Irish Food Board in June 2012, Ireland is galvanising its entire food industry to join the journey to sustainability and be part of the global solution. A growing movement of Irish farmers and producers are answering the call by signing up to the Origin Green charter.

(2013) “Origin Green is a unique programme which will allow Ireland to become a world leader in sustainable high quality food and drink production. The Origin Green programme is built upon the Origin Green Sustainability Charter which will commit participants to engage directly with the challenges of sustainability. This will include reducing energy inputs, minimising overall carbon footprint and lessening impact on the environment in order to increase efficiency and competitiveness.”… as of a year ago “176 companies, representing over 60% of our Food exports, have now signed up to Bord Bia’s Origin Green programme.”
