A South Tipp based company was among Irish food producers who took part in a recent World Organic Trade Fair.
Good Herdsmen, who represent 200 certified organic farmers and have become the biggest dedicated organic meat processor in Ireland or the UK, are based in Cahir.
At the opening of Ireland’s stand at Biofach, the World Organic Trade Fair in Nuremburg, Germany, Minister of State Tom Hayes highlighted the opportunities that exist for Irish organic produce both at home and abroad. Eight innovative Irish seafood and food companies were at the event. Last year, BioFach attracted close to 2,500 exhibitors and some 41,800 trade visitors from 136 countries. Minister Hayes also paid tribute to Bord Bia. “I am convinced that with all the stakeholders of the industry working together, we can realise the potential that clearly exists for the Irish Organic Sector”.
