The food and drink industry in Northern Ireland has announced investment projects worth around £180 million and promoted over 800 new jobs so far this year. Indeed, the agri-food industry is currently contributing £4.5 billion a year to the local economy and growing steadily.

“The investment projects announced by food and drink companies,” says Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister, Arlene Foster, “demonstrate the vibrancy of the industry here and the commitment of those businesses to developing products which combine outstanding taste with innovation and quality.”

“Food and drink is now a major strand in our business and tourism growth strategies which focuses on strengthening our economy and helping to build Northern Ireland into a confident and successful private sector region,” she adds. “The Northern Ireland Executive has recognised the importance of the sector and endorsed the Agri Food Strategy Board’s ‘Going for Growth’ strategic action plan. It is vital we continue to support this important industry by maximising potential especially in relation to new and existing export markets.”
