A record €13.5 billion worth of food, drink and horticulture products were exported from the Republic last year, a 4 per cent rise on 2020. This was achieved despite both the pandemic and Brexit. However, with the rise of gastro nationalism and the sustainability agenda, what does the future have in store for the Irish food industry?
In this podcast with Alison Cowzer, the chief executive of Bord Bia Tara McCarthy talks about all these issues - and much more besides. McCarthy also talks about how inflation is impacting the sector, the battle for talent, and the opportunities and challenges for Irish food exporters.
