Affco Aboutus Natural Land

Our Natural Land

New Zealand’s green pastures naturally
produce the highest quality and most
trusted beef and lamb in the world. Our
temperate climate supports livestock in
open pastures, removing the need for the
use of antibiotics or growth-promoting
hormone treatments.

Commitment to the environment

At AFFCO, we recognise the importance of protecting our environment. Across all facets of our operations we are constantly evaluating our processes to minimise our impact. We work with our valued community of New Zealand farmers in a shared commitment to environmental responsibility. We are constantly developing innovative ways to minimise packaging to reduce waste and for the past 6 years we have partnered with EECA to establish an energy and carbon management programme. This successfully reduced our energy use and carbon emissions across all of our processing plants.

Our Responsibility

AFFCO places a strong emphasis on corporate social responsibility. Since 2006, we’ve raised over $1 million for rural primary schools and fire brigades through our AFFCO Cash for Calves Programme. We also support the local communities where our plants are located, during the recent COVID-19 pandemic we donated significant amounts of meat to local food banks.
