Premier Meat has achieved carbon neutrality in 2020
In 2020, Premier Meat’s total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions were 40.03 tonnes carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e), including 36.71 tonnes of direct, on-site emissions (Scope 1) and 3.32 tonnes of indirect emissions from the generation of purchased electricity (Scope 2)*. To completely offset these emissions and become carbon neutral, we purchased 41 tonnes CO2e of verified carbon offset credits created by emission reduction projects according to the rules of the Quebec government’s regulated GHG cap-and-trade system**
In future years, we will make continuous progress towards reducing our carbon footprint internally, by purchasing renewable energy, improving energy efficiency, and switching to alternative refrigerants with lower global warming potentials.
* Emissions were quantified by consulting firm The Delphi Group, following the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD)’s GHG Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard.
** Carbon offset credits were purchased with the assistance of Coop Carbone.

Fresh and frozen products
Natural and seasoned
If we at Premier Meat Packers like to boast about anything, it is about our Food Safety and Quality Systems ratings and our safety record with the CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency); they are both consistently outstanding!
HACCP (Hazardous Analysis and Critical Control Points) requires that all aspects of the Premier facility meet federal safety and quality standards. Every step in the food handling chain – premises, transportation and storage, equipment maintenance and calibration, sanitation, personnel, and mock recall procedures must have critical control procedures in place that meet International HACCP, GFSI and SQF standards.
The HACCP system consists of the following seven principles:
- Conduct a hazard analysis
- Determine the Critical Control Points (CCPs)
- Establish critical limit(s)
- Establish a system to monitor control of the CCP
- Establish the corrective action to be taken when monitoring indicates that a particular CCP is not under control
- Establish procedures for verification to confirm that the HACCP system is working effectively
- Establish documentation concerning all procedures and records appropriate to these principles and their application
