Four Agri-Food Sector Sites Fail To Meet Necessary Environmental Standards

Four Agri-food sector sites have made the latest Environmental Protection Agencys Priority Sites List.

The EPA published its National Priority Sites for Enforcement List for Quarter 4 2017 today.

The four Agri-food sector sites that have failed to meet necessary environmental standards are; Arrow Group in Co Kildare, Green Pasture Meat Processors Limited in Co Longford, Nutricia Infant Nutrition Limited in Co Cork and Rosderra Irish Meats Group (Edenderry) in Co Offaly.

Three Agri-food companies that have come off the previous National Priority Sites List for Enforcement following improvements in compliance are; Arrabawn Co-operative Society Limited, Tipperary, Carbery Food Ingredients Limited, Cork and Dairygold Co-Operative Society Limited (Mallow), Cork.

The National Priority Sites for Enforcement system was launched by the EPA in July 2017 to drive further environmental compliance at industrial and waste facilities.

Enforcement information on all sites can be found under the Licence Search pages of the EPA website.

Complaints about licensed sites can be made on-line or by contacting the EPA at 053-9160600.
