Readiness Radar 2021: Charting the Challenges & Opportunities Ahead

Irish food and drink manufacturers are navigating one of the most unprecedented trading environments brought about primarily by Brexit & Covid19. To understand the impact and longer term implications of these and other macro-issues Bord Bia will launch the Readiness Radar on Wednesday the 9th of June. The Readiness Radar is a unique information set which provides an in depth understanding of the confidence and preparedness of the industry, as it faces the challenges and opportunities ahead. The predominant topics we have focused on this year are  Trading with GB, Market Diversification, Sustainability and Talent. 

This report - based on qualitative and quantitative research amongst food and drink companies - will provide a timely analysis of the key issues facing the Irish food and drink industry. The launch event will focus on the findings of the research, its implications and how Bord Bia and the industry can respond.
