SUSTAINABILITY

Rangeland is committed to strategies and activities that meet the needs of the business and our customers today while protecting, sustaining and enhancing the human and natural resources that will be needed in the future.

We give back as much as possible to the local community in Monaghan where our plant is based and have developed excellent relationships with local authorities and the community through social and sporting initiatives.

Our long standing relationships with Bord Bia (The Irish Food Board), Enterprise Ireland and the Irish Exporter’s Association have been hugely beneficial for Rangeland’s expansion into other European markets and we continue to work closely to great success with these organisations.

An Environmental Management System (EMS) has been implemented in the factory.  A copy of our Environmental Policy and scope are available upon request. The EMS seeks to enhance sustainability and manage our carbon footprint in the following areas:

Waste Management

As a member of Repak, we have taken measures to ensure that corrugated packaging is eliminated for all raw materials. All plastic packaging in the factory is recycled and we package all of our products in FSC certified foodservice boxes from sustainable sources.

Use of Renewable Energies

We have installed a state of the art thermal energy recovery system to eliminate all oil consumption within our factory. Heat naturally generated during the production process is collected and used to power the factory’s heating system.

Investment in Innovation

Our team of engineers work tirelessly to devise ways of producing food more efficiently while leaving a smaller carbon footprint. Investing in state of the art automation may be expensive in the short term, but we know it will bring long term benefits by reducing our reliance on the earth’s resources.

Animal Welfare and Ethical Trading:

In Ireland, the purity of the air is unsurpassed. Our proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and the mild moist climate contributes to the freshness of our countryside. It is here where our grass-fed cattle can thrive. We know that our cattle are nurtured by competent farmers with the utmost respect for animal welfare. Our suppliers then convert the stress-free cattle into top quality beef, which is fully traceable back to the farms.
