Ireland’s economy remains in a delicate state, but the agri-food sector is one of the bright sparks with exports reaching a record of almost €9 billion for 2011. This is an increase of more than 12% on 2010. During the first nine months of 2011, food and drink exports increased at three times the rate of total merchandise exports.
