agri-food

The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) has begun the process for developing the next ten year strategy to replace Food Wise 2025.  Public consultation is an essential part of this process. The consultation is framed to ascertain the views of all stakeholders on the direction of the sector to 2030 and what strategic actions are required to ensure it lives up to its potential, as well as societal expectations.

This consultation is composed of two elements – an online survey and a series of questions in a consultation document. These questions are framed around seeking the views of the public in relation to the vision for the Irish agri-food sector to 2030 and the environmental, economic and social dimensions of the sector during that period. In addition, a background paper on the economic overview of the agri-food sector is being published which may be of use in better understanding its broad structure and performance.

Respondents can choose which of the questions they respond to in the consultation document. All submissions are welcome and will be considered in developing the Strategy. The consultation is open until the 1st October 2019
