This year’s Speciality Fine Food Fair at London’s Olympia showcased the best food products from all over the world and the whole of Ireland – North and South was well represented.

Bord Bia’s ‘Origin Green’ sustainability initiative continues to gain momentum and the increasing numbers of cheese makers, confectionery companies and craft beers are identified as being of higher quality, developed by skilled craftspeople and following traditional production methods.

A number of Irish companies were represented – Hassetts Artisan Bakery (Cork), Brogans Bakeries (Dublin), Quinlan’s Fish (Kerry), Rapeseed Oil producer Collar of Gold (Louth) and Limerick based Wellnice, who produce cold pressed vegetable and fruit juice ice pops.

Northern Ireland’s Food NI had a pavilion and displayed tempting Soda Farls, preserves and meats.

The new products reflect current trends of clean eating, gluten free and reduced sugar in foods.

The new companies are also partnering with established brands – Brogan’s Bakeries have a shortbread biscuit made with the finest Kerrygold butter.
