Opportunities for sustainable producers – Bord Bia

Karen Tyner, Food & Beverages Division, Bord Bia – Irish Food Board

Today, sourcing sustainably is a driving force for many businesses and is increasingly a factor in choosing the right suppliers to do business with. Due to Ireland’s strong reputation as a source of natural, high-quality food, drink and ingredients, there is a significant interest from domestic, European and International buyers to source from sustainable Irish producers.

Origin Green, Ireland’s food, and drink sustainability programme, is unique in uniting government, the private sector and food producers through Bord Bia, to deliver a national sustainable food chain. For the first time ever Marketplace International is leveraging the strength of Origin Green to evolve into a sustainable sourcing event. It will bring together sustainable, world-class Irish food and drink exporters and over 500 domestic and international buyers to write new, mutually beneficial, sustainable business.

With registration for Irish food companies closing next week, on the 31st of January, companies are advised to register immediately for the event to secure their place. To register for Marketplace use either of the links below today.
