Irish Seafood Business and Origin Green

Origin Green Origin Green

Origin Green is Ireland’s pioneering food and drink sustainability programme, operating on a national scale, uniting government, the private sector and the full supply chain from farmers to food producers and right through to the foodservice and retail sectors. The programme 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 more effectively.

BIM supports the Seafood sector to achieve Origin Green verification by working directly with businesses to develop plans and establish targets and actions.  It also supports seafood businesses in achieving their targets by addressing key issues that emerge and are a sustainability challenge. One BIM project in 2019 to address a sustainability issue, looked at the areas on options for end of life oyster bags in order to find a sustainable solution.
