David Deeley, Insights Manager, Kerry Taste and Nutrition
Innovation is only effective if products and services address a customer/ market need or problem. All innovation and new product development must therefore be driven by credible and relevant consumer and market insights. The Bord Bia Library Team is on hand to provide exactly that! The team is extremely efficient and helpful and a visit to the Library provides a great opportunity to delve further into the detail. It is an excellent support service to the Irish food and drink industry.
