Bord Bia – Origin Green – The World’s First National Sustainable Food Movement
Origin Green is the first national sustainability programme of its kind in the world, operating on a national scale across our entire food industry, from farm to fork. Launched by BordBia in 2012, the programme operates at farm and factory level, helping farmers and food producers lessen their impact on the environment whilst also enhancing society.
There is considerable potential to make the Irish market a showcase for the sustainable production of food and drink products. Such a showcase can help further protect our resources, enhance our reputation and drive market preference for our products across the globe.
In order to create this showcase we need to have every level of the supply chain involved. We are making strong progress with over 520 food and drink companies already registered to Origin Green. 214 of these are verified members who have used the Origin Green charter as a roadmap to develop multiannual plans with clear, measurable sustainability targets for their businesses that have been third party verified and tracked by global agency SGS. Over 85,000 carbon footprint assessments have been undertaken on Irish farms to date – a world first. This assessment is based on an 18 month cycle and is conducted on a national scale taking into account individual feedback and from there continuously improving.
In order to extend the scope, and strengthen the impact of Origin Green, BordBia has recently developed a sustainability charter for retail and foodservice distributors and operators and is now working with a number of key retailers and foodservice distributors and operators to review the content and to pilot the project. Our first verified members are The Musgrave Group & Mc Donald’s Ireland. This development in the Irish market means that Origin Green will cover all elements of the supply chain to the point where consumers purchase or consume the final product, encouraging the delivery of measurable improvements in the sustainability performance of our entire industry.

The earliest known records for steam technology can be traced back to Alexandria in AD.75. It was there that a mathematician known as “Heros” or “Heron” wrote three books on mechanics and the properties of air, and presented plans for a simple “Steam Engine”.
Fast forward from this invention, right through the many innovations of steam technology throughout the world, to 1957 in Krefeld, Germany, where our company founder Hans-Joachim Schroder and a team of enthusiastic and focused Engineers set to designing a reliable, low noise, rapid steam raising, vertical Steam Generator.
On these solid foundations our company has grown into a World leader in the steam industry, with continual growth and expansion across the globe. In the words of our current owner and CEO Mathias Brauner:
“Our history is the cornerstone that supports our current success. Continued growth allows us to push innovation in the future”.
Today, with our UK service centre, the main German manufacturing base, and USA Group members along with 34 other CERTUSS agencies worldwide we offer the latest steam technology and exemplary service.
