ABP Reaches the Top Two at the World’s Leading Circular Economy Awards

ABP Reaches the Top Two at the World’s Leading Circular Economy Awards

Olleco, the Renewables Division of ABP Food Group, has beaten 40 other innovative organisations from across the globe to become one of just two finalists in an enterprise category of the 2019 Circulars Awards – an initiative of the World Economic Forum. This recognition reflects the leading role that ABP has made in addressing the carbon footprint of farming and food supply chains.

In Ireland, Olleco through its partnership with Frylite, has four depots and collects food waste and used cooking oil from many of the country’s leading hotels and food businesses. This waste is then converted into renewable sources including electricity and organic fertilizer. In the UK, Olleco operates sixteen sites including a bio-diesel production facility in Liverpool and three anaerobic digesters in Liverpool and Buckinghamshire.

Olleco joined world leaders and entrepreneurs at the Forum’s annual meeting in Davos on January 21st for the award ceremony. Robert Behan, CEO OF ABP’s Renewable Division Olleco, said: “Olleco is delighted to have made the final shortlist, and be one of the last two finalists in this category.  This recognition is a strong testament to the hard work of every one of the nearly 1,000 strong staff who are dedicated to delivering innovative circular economy solutions. We are also hugely privileged to work with some of the most forward-thinking businesses in the food industry including the team in the Red Cow Moran Hotel and many others across the country.”

In 2017, ABP invested £22 million in a green energy plant for Olleco adjacent to the Arla dairy in Aylesbury Buckinghamshire. The plant produces enough sustainable energy to power the equivalent of 12,000 homes.
