Birds Eye Sustainability Actions

90% of our Tassie veggies are grown within 90km on average of where they’re produced

We have a longstanding partnership with Australian farmers and strive to source locally in Tasmania and around Australia. 90% of our Tasmanian veggies (Broccoli, Cauliflower, Brussell Sprouts, Onions, Beans, Peas and Carrots) are grown on average, within 90km of where they’re produced into products you love and trust.

Reducing Food Production Waste

We process crops that the fresh markets will not accept due to minor cosmetic defects that render them unsuitable. We source around 2500T of carrots and 2000T of onions per year, that would normally go to stockfeed. This process contributes to a reduction in food waste. We use strip-till cultivation on all our Broccoli crops, this reduces the amount of soil impacted by cultivation by about one-third when compared with traditional methods of cultivation. Therefore, reducing energy usage in form of diesel and reduces moisture loss from the soil.

100% of our Hoki and Southern Blue Whiting is MSC-certified

We are proud to say that 100% of our Hoki and Southern Blue Whiting is Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified, caught in the oceans of New Zealand and Australia. MSC is an international non-profit on a mission to end overfishing by setting standards for sustainable fishing and seafood supply chain assurance. It is committed to values of independence, transparency, impartiality, and stakeholder participation. To obtain MSC certification and ensure the standard is robust and transparent, fisheries undergo rigorous assessments by independent, scientific third-party conformity assessment bodies. The MSC Fisheries Standard is based on the current understanding of international fisheries best practice science and management and is regularly reviewed and developed with input from scientists, the fishing industry and conservation groups.

Birds Eye Sustainability Commitments

2013

Reduce carbon emissions with Tasmanian co-generation plant

We invested in a cogeneration plant at our Ulverstone facility in Tasmania (where Birds Eye Potato products are made). This resulted in a total greenhouse gas emissions reduction of 46% upon its installation. The installation of the gas co-generation plant converted coal-fired boilers to natural gas. Eliminating coal helps decrease our environmental footprint.

2023

Reducing waste at our manufacturing sites

Across all our manufacturing sites, less than 1% of waste produced is sent to landfill, with 99% being reused, repurposed, recycled or recovered.
