The Good Food Ireland® Awards made their much-anticipated return on April 17th 2023 at The K Club in Co. Kildare.

What sets the Good Food Ireland® Awards apart from all others, is their cross-sector approach and economically sustainable solution; an unwavering commitment to prioritising Irish ingredients and local food and drink produce. These unique cross-sector awards enhance linkages between agriculture and tourism and present significant opportunities for stimulating local production, retaining tourism earnings in the local area and improving the distribution of economic benefits of tourism to the four corners of Ireland. They celebrate the successful collaboration of businesses working together for inclusive economic growth. With the announcement of the awards and the release of the shortlisted finalists, media outlets have been picking up news of the awards and sharing it across their publications.
