The objective for the Midlands Food & Drink Strategy is to create a unique food and drink eco-system where local people are proud of their local produce, where companies have the capabilities and supports to create world-class hospitality and product experiences, where scaling and exporting is enabled, whilst respecting nature and our environment
Our Food and Drink Cluster aims to promote consumption, exports and engagement through education, marketing and business supports.
With our regional action plan, the vision is for the Midlands to be the most sustainable regional food and drink ecosystem on the island.
The Midlands region is centrally located in the heart of Ireland, and is Ireland’s most connected region, bordering 5 of the 7 other regions in the country. The central location is serviced by a network of Motorways and Rail lines, meaning access to airports, coastal cities and ports are typically within an hour of the key regional urban centres.
