Key Sustainability Commitments

At The Lismore Food Company we are passionate about the environment and sustainability. We are very proud to be a verified Origin Green member. Origin Green is a voluntary sustainability initiative in Ireland led by Bord Bia with the common goal of sustainable food production.
Here are some of our environmental and social initiatives…

Our Committment to Responsible Production

The Lismore Food Company has a policy of only using pure ingredients in our products and have a clean label policy. Their biscuits are very simple and contain no additives. The best example is the All Butter Shortbread which is just flour sugar and butter. Only Irish butter is used.

Our Focus on Health and Nutrition

Clean Recipe/Clean Label Policy- All of our biscuits, snacks and fine confections are ‘clean products’ and we use the minimal ingredients in each of our products.
In our product range we now have Six Gluten Free Products, Three Vegan Products and Three Low Calorie products
Our biscuits are made using the finest Irish Butter, we will never ever use palm oil in our products .

Our Biodiversity Agenda

We are business supporters of All Ireland pollinator plan with Biodiversity Ireland. In our company HQ.
We carefully manage the hedgerows to encourage and protect nesting/shelter for birds and animals.We planted a flowering/ grassy meadow which we mow on a pollinator friendly regime.
We love bees and have planted hundreds of bee and pollinator friendly flowers and herbs along with creating a few bee hotels for solitary bees.

Our Packaging – Reduction and Recycling

We have reduced the packaging of our products by 15% over the past two years. All our packaging is ethically sourced and we reuse all cardboard boxes, not one goes to waste!

Our Social Sustainability
