Export Performance and Prospects
Bord Bia’s Export Performance and Prospects report highlights overall export growth in 2019 of 7% to €13bn, compared to €12.1bn in 2018. Growth across key categories and to priority markets has been achieved against a backdrop of an increasingly complex global trading environment. Shifting commodity prices, weakening confidence in the global economy, along with the increased use of tariffs as an expression of trade policy by the US - directly affecting Irish food and drink exports for the first time - all impacted various sectors of Irish food and drink in different ways in 2019.
The estimated value of food, drink and horticulture exports from Ireland for 2019 is €13bn - capping a decade of extraordinary growth where the value of Irish food and drink exports increased 67%. Read our most recent Performance & Prospects report, or download previous reports, below.
