Dawn Meats, which has operations in seven locations around Ireland, and many more across the UK and Europe, has been awarded in two categories at the prestigious Green Awards 2016, an annual event at which the cream of Ireland’s green industry is recognised. The Waterford-based meat processor was awarded ‘Green Large Organisation of the Year’ and the ‘Sustainable Supply Chain Achievement Award’.

Niall Browne, Dawn Meats CEO comments: “We are delighted to have won these two prestigious awards. They recognise the combined efforts of hundreds of people from Dawn Meats over many years who work towards our company goal of being Europe’s most sustainable meat company. Dawn Meats has set itself demanding 2020 targets to reduce water and energy intensity by 40% and emission intensity by 50%. It is particularly rewarding to receive the sustainable supply chain achievement award after our many years of working collaboratively with our primary farmer suppliers and our customers.”

Dawn Meats has actively promoted initiatives over several years to engage with farmers, research organisations and other interested stakeholders in supporting sustainable agriculture. The company established a demonstration suckler beef farm in 2015 at Newford, Athenry. The Newford farm aims to share best practice in grassland management, breeding, animal health and welfare which will support environmentally and commercially sustainable beef production. Dawn Meats will host an open day on the 25th of May at Newford Farm and all interested parties are welcome. For more information, visit http://www.newfordsucklerbeef.ie/.

Still family-owned, Dawn Meats was established in 1980 and has grown to a business with over €1 billion in annual revenue, employing 3,300 staff in eight countries. Supplying a range of leading super market, food service and restaurant businesses, Dawn Meats exports to over 40 countries. The company has forged close relationships with 15,000 Irish farmers from whom it directly sources grass-fed cattle and lamb for processing at its seven Irish plants.
