Ireland’s Keogh’s to help develop potato farming in Ethiopia

The award-winning Keogh’s Farm in north Co Dublin has committed to a three-year partnership with Vita, which will see it become the first Irish food business to go carbon neutral. Developing a sustainable potato cultivation programme for Ethiopian farmers is the aim of the partnership. Vita is the only Irish not-for-profit overseas development agency to deliver a platform for Irish companies to offset their carbon footprint via their high impact climate-mitigating programmes in Africa. The Keogh family, one of Ireland’s leading crisp makers, has been producing potatoes for over two centuries. Their farm was awarded carbon neutral status in May, which means their emissions are tracked from the field to the crisping house. It is also a member of Bord Bia’s Origin Green sustainability programme. Vita has been working for many years supporting Ethiopian families and communities in building sustainable livelihoods.
