About Good Food Ireland

In 2006 Good Food Ireland pioneered the link between Ireland’s agri-food and tourism hospitality sectors to develop food tourism as an economic driver. The brand was crafted based on strict criteria around a commitment to using Irish food and drink produce, supporting Irish farmers, food producers and fishermen. In 2013 Grant Thornton carried out a business insights survey which reported that 92% of all Good Food Ireland providers increased their purchasing of Irish food over the previous year, which contributed in the region of 50 million to the local economy. All over the island of Ireland restaurants, pubs, cafés, accommodation providers and food and drink producers joined the mission being independently approved to meet the criteria and then marketed through the brand to Irish consumers and international visitors. Today Good Food Ireland has become a trusted brand for authentic Irish food experience.
