Good Food Ireland was established by Margaret Jeffares in November 2006, after identifying a gap and opportunity in the development of a strong food and tourism proposition for the island of Ireland. The aim was to link the agriculture & food sector with the hospitality sector and it has worked very successfully!
The Good Food Ireland (GFI) Food Experience Awards 2012 celebrate their choice of excellence in their members. This year’s awards, in association with Kerrygold, were held in The Shelbourne Hotel on Tuesday, November 20th with special guest attendance by An Taoiseach Enda Kenny T.D.
