2013 Good Food Ireland Awards Shortlisted Finalists Announced


Fri 8th Nov 2013

The shortlisted finalists for the Good Food Ireland Recognising Excellence in Local Food Awards in association with Kerrygold have been announced. The winners of each catagory will be announced at The Shelbourne Hotel on Tuesday 19th November, 2013 by An Taoiseach Enda Kenny T.D. 

The Good Food Ireland Awards were created to redefine ‘good food experience in Ireland’ as being of the highest quality, authentic, responsible and rewarding. We aim to highlight Ireland’s culinary culture to our residents and visitors and direct people to Good Food Ireland for the very best food experience. Our independent inspectors assess membership throughout the year to ensure that you uphold our promise to each other and to the customer.  We review and change award categories to lead and respond to our customers purchasing behaviour and to move forward with the innovation in our agri-food and tourism industry. The awards are rooted in a belief that if we can provide access to customers through one trusted resource, only the very best authentic food experiences that the island of Ireland has to offer; we will build a culinary picture of our country, support local economy and develop strong food communities. Shortlisted finalists and award winners will have succeeded in delivering the Good Food Ireland experience to supreme levels of excellence.
