At Foyle, we’re conscious of our responsibility to operate as a sustainable business and are committed to doing that well. That means having a purpose beyond profit – one that ensures we give equal priority to reducing our negative impacts on the environment and increasing the positive difference we can make in society. This ethos applies across every area of our operations and underpins our support for the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


Global Reporting Initiative

At Foyle Food Group, we understand that creating a sustainable business is both a responsibility and an opportunity. As one of the largest beef processors in the UK, we are not only aware of the challenges our industry faces, but mindful of our own impact on the climate challenge we all face.

That’s why for us, sustainability is embedded in our culture and underpins decision-making across all aspects of our operations. We believe that sustainability and transparency should be front and centre of everything we do and guide every decision we take.

This is our first sustainability report and we are delighted to publish it in accordance with Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards. As the most reputable global standard for sustainability reporting, we are starting as we mean to go on, by embracing the need for transparency in our operations and using a recognisable, comparable framework to aid our efforts.

Our Vision

Terry Acheson
CEO, Foyle Food Group

On Behalf of the Foyle Food Group, I am pleased to present our 2020-2025 sustainability vision.

As one of the largest beef processors in the UK we understand the challenges that the industry faces. With climate change becoming more evident, we at Foyle believe that sustainability and transparency should be at the fore front of everything we do. With sites spread across the UK & Ireland, and a global customer reach we are committed to managing our impact on the environment.

We have developed a policy that focuses on four main pillars of Pasture, Product, Planet & People, which will champion UN Sustainable goals and Science Based Targets. We will publicly publish our progress which demonstrates the business commitment to operate in an open and transparent way.

At Foyle we are focused on creating a sustainable business for both our employees and customers and one committed to delivering real change not just today but in the future.
