Using 100% Renewable Electricity

In the United Kingdom, our Pilgrim’s UK and Pilgrim's Food Masters businesses continued to use 100% renewable electricity in 2022.

Looking ahead, Pilgrim's UK is set to invest over £10 million across 2022 and 2023 to support the roll-out of a series of process innovations and operational improvements. To determine the best reduction projects to invest in, the business has undertaken a net zero investment roadmap exercise. Upgrades include switching out equipment with more energy-efficient alternatives, such as replacing gas boilers with heat pumps and optimizing refrigeration systems. The business also already has local solar projects at many of its sites and is now expanding these to the remainder of its operations across the country – all of which will help to reduce carbon emissions by 11,000 metric tons annually.
