Enterprising Food Waterford Series

As part of our development strategy for food producers in Co. Waterford, we are developing an Enterprising Food Waterford B2B series for 2018 / 2019.

The main focus of this series is to further enhance the regional food structure in Co. Waterford through the focused delivery of events by leading National Food Agencies, and practitioners.

  • An annual increase in GVA to local food produce in Co. Waterford,
  • Exploration of new sustainable business opportunities for food producers in Co. Waterford which will deliver value and growth,
  • To improve the business performance of the food firms in Co. Waterford, regionally, nationally and internationally,
