Liverpool score sustainable food partnership with Quorn to help them “Go Green”
Liverpool has announced a partnership with meat-free food brand Quorn in a effort to make their food products at games more environmentally friendly.
As part of the 'Reds Go Green' initiative, the Premier League side has signed a multi-year deal.
Around 14.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions come from animal agriculture and this partnership aims to reduce the amount of meat used at kiosks at Anfield.
Billy Hogan, managing director and chief commercial officer at Liverpool FC, said:
“As a leading provider of sustainable meat-free products in the UK, Quorn will be a key partner in the club’s sustainability efforts. In this case, Quorn will help us provide our supporters with more sustainable food alternatives on matchdays.
“We look forward to providing a platform to help our fans, employees and playing staff make positive contributions to tackling climate change while at the same time considering their health and wellbeing.”
Gill Riley, marketing director at Quorn, added:
“Our partnership with Liverpool FC is very important to our Quorn vision, which is to provide food that is healthy for our families and the planet.
“We also want to understand the positive impact Quorn’s super-protein can have on elite sports performers, so working with LFC and its world-renowned nutritional experts will be fundamental in the next phase of our sports science research.”
