Bord Bia (the Irish Food Board) recently commissioned this Infographic to visualize the rise in Irish food and drink exports in the first half of 2013. There has been over 8% increase since 2012.
The prospects for food and drink exports remains broadly positive for the remainder of 2013 as good demand for dairy and beef combined with a stronger Prepared Foods performance and further steady growth in beverages all point to exports for the year increasing by around 7% to approach €9.7 billion.
It makes for interesting reading a points to great potential for the future of the Food industry in Ireland.
