Good Food Ireland - Opening new business opportunities
Kay Harte, Farmgate Co. Cork

“Thank you to Good Food Ireland for all the great work you did to get us to that wonderful event at the US Ambassador's Residence and for opening up new doors and business opportunities for us. It was an extremely valuable one; well done to you all.”

Good Food Ireland - Proud to be associated
Ross Lewis, Chef/Proprietor, Chapter One

Good Food Ireland's vision leads the way in changing Ireland's food image
Jane Russell, Jane Russell's Original Irish Handmade Sausages

"The vision you had for the part that Good Food Ireland could play was more than realised and understood by everyone who visited the Food Village. So many of our customers commented on the quality of the food and really appreciated the opportunity to be able to get food that would not normally be available at such an event. We were delighted to be part of the collective that made up the Good Food Ireland Food Village at the World Sheep Shearing in Wexford- Golden Shears."

Good Food Ireland - Attracting New Visitors
Birgitta Curtin, The Burren Smokehouse and Visitor Centre

The Good Food Ireland Map provides a great opportunity to promote the Burren Smokehouse and to attract new visitors that are looking for 100% Artisan Irish Food and to our visit our smokehouse throughout the year. Well done. Thank you.

Good Food Ireland - A fantastic Initiative
Billy Kelly, Kelly's Resort Hotel, Rosslare

Good Food Ireland is a fantastic initiative, and goes along with our ethos at Kelly's. Our emphasis has always been on using the maximum amount of local food produce. Good Food Ireland is the perfect association for my business. It also provides a superb collaborative network for artisan food producers. There's no doubt it will sell Ireland as a true - rather than imagined - gourmet destination with an abundance of good, locally grown and produced food. It is up to us as the approved businesses to live up to the standards Good Food Ireland want us to convey.

The Principles of Good Food Ireland
Peter Ward, Country Choice, Co Tipperary

At Country Choice we've aspired to the principles of Good Food Ireland for the last 25 years. We want to give visitors to Ireland the same pleasure we experience here on a daily basis. Now we are delighted to be in a network of people with similar ideals. The strength of this initiative lies in the personal pledge from the Good Food Ireland member businesses to continue to meet the acquired standard and deliver a genuine authentic Irish food experience. Ireland's artisans are the foundation stone of the Good Food Ireland philosophy, the bedrock on which our food culture is built. Together we now celebrate them as the true food heroes in all strata of Irish life.
