Tulip Foods is one of Europe’s largest meat processors. They employ 2200 staff at three sites in Cornwall (Bugle, Bodmin and Redruth). Employees of Tulip Bodmin have undertaken Environmental Auditing Training through Cornwall College Business. Tulip are committed to environmental management practices in order to reduce their impact on the environment; become more energy efficient, thus saving resources and money; and to meet customer requirements.
“We at Tulip Bodmin have worked very hard in developing our EMS over the last two years to the point that we are in the final stages of ISO 14001 accreditation. We are proud of what we have achieved so far and are committed to continually improving our environmental performance”, said Richard Stevens.
Tulip’s dedication to lessening their impact on the environment was recognised at the Cornwall College Business Excellence in Business Training Awards where they received the Commitment to Environmental Management Award.
The Environmental Auditing Training provided delegates with an understanding of environmental issues and the auditing process in a real life setting. The training covered key environmental legislation, the different types of audits which an organisation can conduct, the structure of an audit and auditing areas. Practical sessions allowed the delegates the opportunity to put the auditing skills they have acquired from the course into practice.
The trained individuals will form Tulip’s Environmental Auditing Team and will regularly audit their Environmental Management System, procedures and work instructions. This will surely develop the team and enhance the auditing function. The Auditing Team will also benefit the business by identifying areas of non-conformance and help them comply with the three main criteria for ISO 14001.
The Environmental Auditing Team will elevate the organisation to a new level of operation that is more effective and efficient and make Tulip more attractive to the supermarkets as a supplier.
