Dundalk Bay Seafood’s Ltd Environmental Standards
We constantly measure our energy use and aim to continuously reduce consumption per unit of output in each of our manufacturing operations. Where feasible to do so, renewable energy sources are used.
We use water from our own resources of our two springs which we regularly monitor and test to insure that our water is continuing its high quality mark. Although the water is our own we continue to use the resource responsibly and aim to continuously reduce our water use and discharge per unit of output at each location. Since our water has such a good quality mark it is renowned as the best drinking water source in the community and we have decided to share this source with the community by placing a tapped well outside premises where members of the community can come and enjoy the local spring
Packaging materials are designed where possible to minimise their environmental impact whilst still ensuring that product safety and integrity are maintained at all times. Wherever practicable packaging materials are manufactured from recyclable or reusable materials.
