Bord Bia has a number of market supports in place to help businesses prepare for exporting their produce.
The total value of Irish food, drink and horticulture exports in 2018 was €12.2bn. In support of this, Bord Bia has a large range of programmes and actions in place, to assist businesses with their export operations.
These supports include information on foreign markets, distribution channels, a range of Distributor Guides, as well as in-market trade shows, and of course our flagship programme, Origin Green.
