Origin Green Sustainability Programme

  • • Codd Mushrooms recognises sustainability as a key component of business performance and is committed to minimising its impact on the environment.
  • • A key area which it has focused upon in its current sustainability plan (2018-2022) is the reduction of waste.
  • • To reduce the level of general waste sent to landfill, the company implemented initiatives to reduce unnecessary packaging generated from its label suppliers, invested in the research and sourcing of compostable film and punnets, and introduced a product line in cardboard punnets.
  • • As of 2020, the company achieved a 10.6% decrease in general waste sent to landfill.
  • • Due to strong initial success, Codd Mushrooms readjusted its target for wastage reduction of rejected mushrooms from 22% to 51% by 2022.
  • • In 2020, 80% ahead of its current target, recorded a decrease of 83.6% kg/kg from baseline per unit of output.
The Codd Family has been growing the finest quality mushrooms from its farm in Tullow, Co. Carlow since 1989.
