Modern poultry production is one of the most sustainable sources of meat, and our aim is to keep our environmental footprint to a minimum.
We do this in a number of ways:
Whether it’s a permitted farm, our largest processing site or anything in-between, we stay on top of regulations and manage our business efficiently, effectively and with great care. We were the first poultry producer with sites certified to ISO50001 standards for energy management and this will be complemented by ISO140001 in the near future.
Where possible, we aim to reduce the resources we use, or alternatively, find renewable sources. The majority of our farms are powered by renewable energy sources; we purchase blue energy where renewables aren’t an option and we continually look for ways to bring our consumption down.
Raw poultry needs to be packaged in a way that promotes food safety, but not at the expense of the environment. That means reducing the amount of plastic and making sure that what we use can be recycled.
Our aim is to find a home for everything, whether it’s recyclable material, animal droppings or inedible parts of a bird. We take pride in avoiding waste wherever we can and always endeavour to do more.
