At Ballon Meats, we source our quality meat products from the local environment so it is only natural we view environmental protection as an important part of our business. In order to provide you and your customers with the highest quality products, our processing plant maintains the highest industry standards. With a series of proactive and innovative environmental measures in place, Ballon Meats have helped reduce its carbon foot print.


Our environmental aims – we will…

-

Seek to reduce consumption of materials in our operation.  At Ballon Meats we will reuse rather than dispose wherever possible and promote recycling and the use of recycled materials.

-

Design energy efficient infrastructure in new buildings and equipment and work hard to manage energy wisely in all operations.

-

Provide necessary training and support to all our staff so that they can carry out their responsibilities effectively and professionally.

-

Work with external groups and organisations to promote the concepts and practices of environmental protection.

-

Create partnerships with our suppliers and customers in the adoption of environmentally sound practices.


Proactive environmental practices

-

We have also built an integrated wetlands system used for the treatment of all waste water created on site. A first for an Irish Meat company, it now covers twenty acres. Since then the area has become a wildlife sanctuary and attracts large amounts of wild birds, insects and mammals to the region. No chemicals are used in this part of the treatment process.

-

As part of our ongoing environmental scheme the company has established a willow plantation, planting over 11,000 willow trees. The wood chips from these trees have been harvested in 2012 and will be used as fuel for a bio energy boiler.

-

Since 2009 Ballon Meats have endeavoured to ensure that the bulk of their power be supplied by renewable resource providers.
