Why Ireland?

Ireland's long standing farming tradition, together with our location on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, provides us with the ideal climate and conditions for sustainable farming and food production. Two thirds of Ireland’s land is used for agriculture and in fact, 80% of Ireland’s agricultural land is devoted to grasslands.  Our rich soils produce lush, green grass where our cattle and sheep have the freedom to graze outdoors for up to 300 days a year. With its rich soil, agricultural heritage and innovative spirit, Ireland is perfectly placed to grow and export delicious, fresh food and Inish Bia is excited about bringing these tastes to those with a keen desire for high quality, sustainable food. 

Inish Bia supports the Irish Food Board / Bord BiaOrigin Green sustainability programme.  Origin Green is a world leading national sustainability programme for the entire Irish food and drink industry. At its core is the Origin Green charter . Independently verified, it enables Ireland’s farmers and producers to set and achieve measurable sustainability targets.
