ABOUT THE AWARDS

Kilkea Castle, Co. Kildare

The Good Food Ireland® Awards provide standout and recognition to those people who genuinely capture the essence of Ireland’s food and drink, setting it in a cultural context to inspire travellers, international consumers and locals to seek out real authenticity and Irish provenance in restaurants, pubs, hotels, as well as in retail for their homes and kitchens, here and around the world.


They champion Ireland’s best producers and shine a light on biodiversity at farm level as well as the way producers grow, cultivate, harvest and catch the produce they supply to leading chefs, establishments and retailers.


Each award will be underpinned by premium quality, exceptional achievement, innovation, agility and resilience, together with a core commitment to local Irish provenance, community, sustainability and a culture where all can flourish.


A number of cross-sectoral award categories will celebrate Ireland’s farmers from dairy to tillage to beef, fishermen, food and drink producers, foodservice and tourism hospitality providers, retailers and international chefs and purveyors.
