The story of Irish food

The story of Irish food

Food is central to our collective nourishment, sense of belonging and wellbeing. Its importance means there is a constant focus on providing food in a safe, transparent and sustainable way.
Producing world-class food, drink and horticulture comes naturally to Ireland where nature has always been nurtured.

Ireland is an island off the edge of Europe - our coastline along the Wild Atlantic Way, our fresh clean air, our open green fields and plentiful rain make Ireland the perfect place for producing food and drink as nature intended. And for generations our family farms have worked the land, with a sensitivity and care that seamlessly weaves modern technology with past traditions.

Bord Bia works in a unique partnership across the food chain to inspire the production, sourcing and consumption of the highest quality natural food for today and tomorrow. Through a deep understanding of our markets and customers we are innovating and developing new ways of sharing sustainable food, drink and horticulture with the world.
