Origin Green member companies ‘see a difference’: Bord Bia undertook a survey of their own clients in 2020, survey results indicated increased level of satisfaction with the Origin Green programme. Companies recognised Mabbett’s high standards of delivery and professionalism through the ongoing verification process.

Proactive approach to delivery: Our verification team work in partnership with Bord Bia for delivery of the Origin Green programme providing feedback and innovative suggestions on programme improvements. This has been recognised and welcomed by Bord Bia.

“As the independent verifier of the Bord Bia Origin Green programme, the Mabbett team have a critical responsibility in ensuring that members of the programme continue to meet expectations and that information is accurate and credible. At all times, Mabbett have completed this task to the highest standards, demonstrating a willingness to go above and beyond.
