Organiser Blas na hEireann

Organiser of Blas Backyard Online - A-Z of Irish Grocery

Blas na hEireann, The Irish Food Awards were founded so that quality benchmarks could be established for Irish produce on a level playing field. 

Our aims have always been...

  • To highlight the very best of Irish food and drink and to create a platform from which Irish producers may gain greater recognition from a wider audience, both in Ireland and beyond.
  • To build a strong network for Irish producers to forge partnerships, gain knowledge and find support.
  • To help the Irish consumer to find the very best of Irish food and drink and encourage them to choose these products.

With these aims in mind we are always working to strengthen the network of Irish food producers. The awards have to be about more than a piece of glass, we work to create opportunities, to educate producers and importantly to connect producers as we know that what is good for the industry as a whole is good for individual producers.
