Over the years Good Food Ireland has received wonderful feedback, firstly from the people who applauded our vision, the agri-food and tourism industries. They were in need of standout and recognition at a time when challenges soared and recognition for doing "something good" every day was not recognised or applauded. Secondly as a consumer facing endorsement for good local food Good Food Ireland drove previous unexplored commercial opportunites for approved members and at the same time highlighted a whole new experience for customers.
Since we first started on our mission to develop Ireland as a food tourism destination, change the image of Irish cuisine and drive food lovers to our approved network of the very best authentic local food experiences, Good Food Ireland has had overwhelming support from partners who have sponsored, worked with, endorsed us and helped spread our word to the world.
When Good Food Ireland first brought an industry together in 2006 to grow Ireland's awareness as a food tourism destination, it was very much a pioneering vision. However, not only did it provide a solution for a fragmented industry giving them standout and recognition, it created a single endorsement for consumers to seek out authentic local food experiences. During this time we received such great feedback and encouragement from so many customers. Here are just a small selection.
