BWG Foods, one of Ireland's leading retail and wholesale businesses, has claimed the prestigious Environment Award at the 2020 Fleet Transport Awards in the Citywest Hotel, Dublin recently.

Commenting on the award win, Joanne Mellon, Logistics Director BWG Foods said: “We in BWG are delighted to have received this award that acknowledges our commitment in BWG Foods to create an environmentally sustainable business that makes a positive contribution to the communities in which we operate.

"We are proud to take a leadership position across industry with the addition of CNG powered trucks to our busy fleet, a development that will significantly reduce the business’ environmental impact and help protect our environment in the fight against climate change.”

Fleet Of CNG

This award is recognition of BWG Foods becoming the first FMCG group in the country to launch a fleet of CNG (compressed natural gas) vehicles following an initial investment of more than €2 million in 14 new trucks along with supporting infrastructure.


There are further plans to extend its investment in CNG vehicles by an additional €6 million for a further 50 vehicles by 2025 as part of its wider supply chain sustainability programme.
