Good Food Ireland celebrated its 10 Year anniversary last week, at the brand new forum ‘touRRoir’.

This global forum took place in Croke Park, and noted the achievements of Ireland’s food producers. The ‘Best of the Decade Awards’ featured at the event, as well as an inaugural Hall of Fame award to recognise International Food Tourism and Culture achievements. The winners were decided by a global judging panel.

According to the Good Food Ireland official website, the organisation wanted to celebrate their 10th birthday by holding their ‘Best of the Decade Awards at touRRoir 2016’.

“These will recognise the unique individuality of Good Food Ireland Members over the last decade. The Best of the Decade Awards are about looking back and acknowledging those who have gone the extra mile and whose efforts have impacted change, but they are also about looking forward and taking a glimpse into the future,” explained Good Food Ireland.

Good Food Ireland was founded in 2006, and it describes itself as ‘the quality guarantee for everyone who simply loves good food’:

“Our premium collection, linking agri-food and tourism hospitality businesses, brings together farmers, food producers and fishermen, gourmet accommodation, pubs, cafes, cookery schools and speciality food shops. All have met strict criteria, through independent inspection and approval, based on premium standards and a shared philosophy for using indigenous local food, prior to being welcomed to the Good Food Ireland family of members.”

At the touRRoir forum, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade was guest of honour, and five awards were presented in total.
