We are delighted to have recently awarded ISO 14001 Environmental Management Certification, to Dawn Meats, Ballyhaunis.
With the awarding of this certification it now positions the Dawn Meats as an environmental leader in the Irish food industry.
As part of their ISO 14001 environmental strategy, the company focused on three key areas, Water Consumption, Energy Consumption and Product Packaging. Through a series of technology and work practices changes, Dawn Meats have managed to achieve a saving of 10,000 m3 of water per annum and up to 70,000 liters of oil a year, dramatically reducing their carbon footprint!
To ensure that this environmentally friendly initiative is continued long after products leave the site, Dawn Meats, Ballyhaunis, with their help of many customers, redesigned the packaging of their products. The new eco-friendly design now uses less cardboard and encourages more recycling.
Dawn Meats are reducing their carbon footprint and leading the way towards an environmentally friendly meat industry!
