Unique Quality Endorsement

Good Food Ireland® is the only licensed quality endorsement, giving standout and recognition to food service providers and food and drink producers in the island of Ireland that meet strict provenance criteria around the use of Irish ingredients in their produce and cuisine. It creates a sustainable economy and contributes to the livelihood of local communities.

Trust and recommendation are what we have built our reputation on since 2006. Unlike other signs you may only display the Good Food Ireland® sign while you are an approved member. But Good Food Ireland® is much more than a recognised quality standard, it offers a marketing partnership with access to an engaged global audience of food lovers, leisure and business travellers.

Once you meet the criteria through onsite inspection, you have the flexibility to choose your preferred marketing programme as outlined below.

Why Join Us?

Good Food Ireland® gives assurance to tourists and locals alike and directs them to our approved food service providers and producers that showcase our island’s indigenous ingredients. Through our network, we connect chefs with farmers, food producers and fishermen to support the development of sustainable local sourcing. We are an all island network, from which chefs, producers and food lovers globally can share in Ireland’s local culinary and cultural identity.

If you meet the quality criteria, we invite you to join our like-minded network. Please fill out the form below or call us on +353539158693. We look forward to hearing from you.
