Irish Fish - Fishery Improvement Project

We have an important role to play in the sustainable development of the Irish fishing industry and the protection of our waters. We are key stakeholders in the Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM) backed Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs), which focus on improving health and long term sustainability of Irish fisheries. This is a five year plan that focuses on fishing practices, fishery management, onshore handling and data collection for marine scientists.

Other certifications for our fish include:

Sustainable Agriculture - Green Isle


100% of our vegetable
growers are Sustainable
Agriculture Initiative (SAI)
silver or gold certified.


All our vegetables and
fruit are grown outside,
under the sun.



Our growers turn wastewater into energy, recycling as much as possible and using remaining water to irrigate the fields.


Stalks and carrot tops are ploughed back into the fields by our growers for nutrients and vegetable skins go to a biodigester to create energy.
