Working in harmony with nature...

We’re proud to say that sustainability has always been a major part of our family business. Since the 1780s when the original water-wheel drove the Mill, we’ve been committed to working in harmony with the environment in everything we do.

We've been active members of Bord Bia's sustainability initiative, Origin Green, since it began and we're delighted to have been awarded Gold Member Status for the past three years (2021, 2022 and 2023)  in recognition of our achievements over the past number of years.

As part of our Origin Green membership we commit to making meaningful improvements to our business each year to minimise our impact on the environment and on our community.  We also commit to supporting community activities that align with our brand ethos and educating consumers on the value of healthy eating and embracing healthy lifestyles.

Our team is committed to making positive strides forward on our sustainability journey every year and we’d like to thank each and every member of our team for helping us achieve Gold Status again in 2023.

We recognise our journey hasn’t ended – scroll to find out more!



As our business continued to grow, we decided to put a greater emphasis on the generation of our own renewable energy.

To this end, we installed a 500 kW wind turbine in 2015. This clean energy source provides us with 1.44M kWh of electricity (or approx. 60% of our total requirements) every year and as such, is the company's biggest power generator.
