Moy Park Wins ‘Waitrose Way’ Sustainability Awards

Moy Park Wins ‘Waitrose Way’ Sustainability Awards

Northern Ireland-based poultry processor Moy Park has received two “Waitrose Way” awards. The first, Treading Lightly – carbon (own label), is for an energy saving of 11,200 CO2e and £2 million in 2012 compared to 2011. The second, Treading Lightly – waste (own label), is for diverting over 96 per cent of waste from landfill across all UK processing sites, with the long term aim of diverting 100 per cent of waste.

The ‘Waitrose Way Awards’ celebrate suppliers’ outstanding initiatives to enhance the sustainability of their businesses and, ultimately, the food that ends up on consumers’ plates. This is the second year that these awards have taken place and winners were selected from over 150 entries.

Suppliers were invited to enter the awards under the categories of Treading lightly, Championing British, Living well and Treating people fairly – which are the four core principles of the supermarket’s CSR policy, ‘The Waitrose way’. This year, four awards for building and development suppliers were also introduced – Treading lightly for carbon, waste and water and also for an award for Responsible Development Innovation.

Quentin Clark, head of Sustainability and Ethical Sourcing at Waitrose says: “These awards are a fantastic way of celebrating the hard work that our suppliers have been doing to improve the sustainability of their businesses and ultimately the Waitrose business as a whole. It was hard to pick the winners from such a high standard of applicants and we are delighted that so many suppliers share the same goals that we do.”

Mike Mullan, HR and Business Improvement director at Moy Park, comments: “Across the company we are actively committed to securing the environmental sustainability of our operations. We view waste as a valuable commodity rather than simply a cost, therefore as much waste as possible is either recycled or recovered as energy. It is a great honour to receive these awards and reflects the dedication and support across all our teams for the common sustainability goals we share with Waitrose.”
