Since its inception in 1962, Errigal Bay, located in a remote Gaeltacht region of Northwest Ireland, was underpinned by a clear vision of sustainability. That initial vision and foresight, to build employment in order to stave off emigration and to strengthen the local community, remains at the core of Errigal Bay values to the present day
Errigal Bay in the past 4 years has expanded its initial view of sustainability beyond that of job creation to include the wider aspects of environmental and economic sustainability. The company seeks to balance the economic feasibility of its activities with social and environmental responsibility, to serve the broader needs of society in combination with serving the needs of our customers.
Errigal Bay is proud to be a Verified Member of Origin Green, the Irish Food Board national sustainability program , under which we have committed to annual targets of reduced energy and water usage and waste generation per kg of finished product .
Additionally to ensure the sustainability of the fisheries from which its product is sourced, Errigal Bay in 2014 set up a Fishery Improvement Plan for the queen fishery from which we source product and has just recently commenced a Brown Crab Fishery Improvement Plan
