Organics From Ireland
Ireland has a steep tradition and heritage in producing world class organic produce. Due to Ireland’s island location on the most western point of Europe and its mild temperate wet climate, it is the ideal location for producing high quality, delicious tasting organic produce. Irish organic farmers are committed to working in harmony with nature utilising the natural resources of Ireland’s lush grasslands. While 100% of salmon from Ireland is organic, fed on a diet of natural ingredients with fish welfare and health a top priority. Irish organic food and beverages are certified to strict EU organic standards along with accreditation from the leading organic standard across Continental Europe and the UK.
Launched in 2012, Origin Green is Ireland’s national sustainability programme for the Irish food and drink industry. It is the only sustainability programme in the world which operates on a national scale, uniting government, the private sector and food and drink producers.
Origin Green is independently verified, enabling Ireland’s farmers, producers and food businesses to set and achieve measurable sustainability targets – reducing environmental impact, serving local communities more effectively and protecting the extraordinarily rich natural resources that Ireland enjoys.
