Cork Could Play Key Role in Irish Food-Tech Plans

Bord Bia has produced another insightful analysis of international markets that Irish food companies will value.

The agency continues to evolve its services and product to assist the food industry as it grapples with Brexit while seizing the opportunities stemming from global growth in food demand. Prioritising Markets is a report worth reading in that context.

While most focus around the strategy for Irish food is rightfully based on the physical food producers in Ireland, there is an enormous opportunity to develop another angle that hooks up food with information technology.

Food technology is a rapidly developing and dynamic sector worldwide which fuses IT with agri-food to address a multiplicity of markets.

While Cork has a long-standing tradition in world-class food engineering it has yet to grasp the potential that exists on its own doorstep for food technology.
