Origin Green for farmers

On-farm assessments constitute a key component of the Origin Green programme. Each week, more than 100 farm auditors undertake about 650 independent farm audits, on an 18 month cycle.

Traditionally, these assessments have focused on traceability, animal health & welfare, and general environmental issues, with an overarching focus on
food safety. In 2012, these well-established schemes were expanded into Sustainable Assurance Schemes, marking the beginning of Origin Green.

The additional sustainability criteria being measured to date, as part of Origin Green include greenhouse gas; biodiversity; water measures; energy efficiency; soil management and socio-economic factors.
