Providing services for buyers is a core part of the work of Bord Bia/Irish Food Board.
Buyers seeking more information on any of our services should contact their preferred location as listed on the Contacts page or can complete an Enquiry Form. We can also advise you on your visit to Ireland, if and when you wish to visit the manufacturing facilities, and meet with senior management of the individual companies.
Buyers seeking more information on suppliers can visit www.irishfoodanddrink.com, Bord Bia’s dedicated website which profiles Ireland’s food and drink suppliers. This website is designed to help you easily source food and drink products from Ireland. There are over 160 profiles of Irish suppliers, all of which have met the rigorous criteria of Bord Bia’s Origin Green sustainability programme.
The menu options on the left-hand side are:
Origin Green: This is our sustainability initiative under which farmers and manufacturers commit to continually improving their production to deliver on sustainable targets.
We operate a number of Quality Assurance Schemes to international standards that encompass sustainability measures in some instances that can underpin a manufacturer's sustainability plans under Origin Green. A description of each scheme and the members of each can be found by following the link above to the Farmers' section.
Irish Sector Profiles: This section will give you broad descriptions of key sectors within the Irish food industry
Company Search: If are looking for details of particular companies of which you are aware, you can do that in that option.
It's Garden Time describes this consumer promotion in the Irish market and suggest ways in which garden centres and other retailers can capitalise on this campaign.
Just Ask is a campaign urging diners to ask about the provenance of the meat being served in restaurants in Ireland. This section describe how restaurants can participate in the programme.
While Bord Bia/Irish Food Board's remit includes food and drink products for human consumption, we can also help you with amenity or ornamental horticultural products.
However, if you are interested in machinery, equipment or other non-edible products or services related to the food industry you should consult Enterprise Ireland.
