Dublin Food Chain is a collaborative initiative of Local Enterprise Offices in the Dublin area, and supported by Bord Bia. The Dublin Food Chain is part of an ongoing effort to harness the power of the 'collective', in order to ensure that Co. Dublin's unique food heritage benefits from the attention it deserves.
Throughout the county, a diverse selection of crucial food training and food marketing initiatives are underway. Now, through the Dublin Food Chain brand, these programmes can enjoy better linkages and cross-promotion.
Whether, it is through training, networking or collective marketing, our key aim is to work together towards promoting and expanding our valuable food sector.
With the support of local consumers, trade buyers and food producers (combined with sponsorship and support from Bord Bia), we endeavour to continuously champion and encourage the flourishing Co. Dublin food sector.
Ultimately, the goal of the Dublin Food Chain is to help the county nurture its enviable status as an iconic food brand.
The Dublin Food Chain network is dedicated to cooperation within the Dublin food sector, as a means of increasing members' profiles, and increasing sales opportunities, for food products from across Dublin County.
