Crucial role of sector highlighted in new agri-food strategy

Food and Drink Industry Ireland, the Ibec group that represents the food sector, today welcomed Food Wise 2025, the new national agri-food strategy, which was launched earlier.

FDII Chairman and CEO Glanbia Consumer Foods Colin Gordon highlighted the inclusion of all industry sectors across food and drink in the strategy and welcomed the recognition of the strategic importance of agri-food to Ireland.

Mr Gordon said: “The new strategy clearly demonstrates how critical the sector is to Ireland’s economic growth and its social fabric. It is vital now that every government department and agency works together to ensure its effective and full implementation. This will require the necessary funding and resources for the relevant state bodies and for the various initiatives outlined in the strategy. Industry will actively support the strategy, but will also closely monitor the implementation of key deliverables that have been identified.”
