Galmere Fresh Foods Achieves 2023 Gold Membership in Bord Bia’s Origin Green Program: A Triumph in Sustainability and Nutrition
Galmere Fresh Foods is honoured to announce we have obtained a 2023 Gold Membership of Bord Bia’s Origin Green programme.
In our ongoing sustainability programme, we have been acknowledged to have achieved exemplary performance in three of our targets; Product Health and Nutrition, Raw Materials and Supplier Certification and Packaging.
This is the second time that Galmere has achieved Gold Membership status, the first being in 2021.
In their report on Origin Green’s Gold Membership 2023, Bord Bia states:
“Environmental protection is a cornerstone of Galmere Fresh Foods’ ethos, who seek to improve their environmental and social sustainability through their Origin Green membership. As a Tier 3 member, they are reporting on a minimum of 6 targets each year. In 2022, they scored exemplary performance in multiple target areas, including Raw Materials and Supplier certification, Packaging, and Product Health and Nutrition.”
The Origin Green team have particularly highlighted our work on Product Health and Nutrition:
“Working closely with their consumers, the new product development team captures trends and works on delivering tasty products that are low in salt and fat content. In 2022, they worked on reformulating one of their existing products, “The Galway Kitchen” houmous. The new, healthier option has 30% less fat. In addition, Galmere Fresh Foods developed an entirely new product, a highly nutritional bone broth that is low in fat and salt.
“The continued effort to improve product ranges to include more healthy choices and transparency about product nutrition has allowed Galmere Fresh Foods to build a strong, trusted reputation for their products and promote a healthy lifestyle to their consumers.”.
