Carbery is a new member of the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) Platform
The SAI is the primary global food & drink value chain initiative for sustainable agriculture.
Food companies and retailers are the largest purchasers of agricultural raw materials. To ensure a constant, increasing and safe supply of agricultural raw materials, these must be grown in a sustainable manner.
SAI Platform develops (or co-develops) tools and guidance to support global and local sustainable sourcing and agriculture practices. Examples of recently developed resources include: Sector ‘Principles and Practices’ documents; Practitioner’s Guide for Sustainable Sourcing; recommendations for Sustainability Performance Assessment (SPA); and the Farm Sustainability Assessment (FSA).
“Carbery is dedicated to improving our dairy industry sustainability from farm to fork,” said Sinead Treanor, Milk Accreditation and CSR. “Carbery aims to be a representative for Ireland in relation to the agri-dairy industry and to have opportunity to influence those around us on the areas that the industry needs to progress in.”
