ABP has grown into an international business but we never forget our roots. Find out where we’re coming from, as a business and as people.
ABP’s vision is simple. To be the best at everything we do. Being a market leader comes with responsibilities. You also have to lead on quality, traceability and sustainability.
It’s our responsibility as leaders in the market to show the way, and encourage our entire industry to follow a sustainable path.
This is ABP’s Advantage Beef Programme, a dynamic new enterprise partnership that helps farmers build a sustainable beef business.
We could tell you that ABP’s success relies on entrepreneurship, innovation and a deep knowledge of our sector. That’s all true. But the real reason we’re leaders in the business is our ability to always think ahead.
We started our sustainability journey more than three decades ago. Not because it’s trendy (it wasn’t, back then), but because it’s essential. Without our natural environment we don’t have a business, or a future.
For decades we’ve worked to reduce emissions directly produced by our business. Driving efficiencies, using cleaner energy, minimising waste every way we can. We’ve had great success here, but we know there’s a bigger picture at play. Adopting science-based targets has enabled us to build an environmental strategy that encompasses our full supply chain, from farm gate straight through to consumer.
ABP Food Group is a fully integrated agribusiness. Our main business – processing beef – is supported by three interlocking divisions: pet foods, renewables and proteins. This unique circular economy minimises waste of by-products from beef processing, utilising them across other parts of the business and ensuring our products are based on sustainable practices.
We ensure our sustainability strategy extends all along the supply chain, from farm gate, to customer, to chef, to consumer. These efforts have been recognised globally, but we’ll never rest on our laurels.
