The MidlandsIreland.ie Regional Food Producers Directory 2016 was officially launched by Minister Michael Creed at the national ploughing championships in Tullamore on Wednesday, September 21st.

The Action Plan for Jobs (APJ) Midland Region specifically identifies the Food Sector as a key sector for driving targeted growth tailored to the specific strengths of the Midland Region.

The MidlandsIreland.ie Regional Food Producers Directory 2016, showcases the outputs of a CEDRA Agri Food Tourism Initiative. This project enabled food producers in the Midland Region to develop a strong marketing portfolio for their products; with 100 regional producers participating in the project.

It is an exciting time for food in Ireland, and the Midland Region is well represented, with many producers within the region receiving awards for great food and taste from Blas na hÉireann, the Irish Food Writers’ Guild and Euro-Toques Ireland – the Irish branch of the European Community of Chefs & Cooks.

The directory profiles producers across diverse categories which include Bakery; Beverages; Confectionery; Catering / Cookery Schools / Training; Dairy; Meats; Organic; Prepared Foods; Preserves and Produce.
