Food for thought on Irish exports

I have just returned from what is reputed to be the largest food show in the world, GulFood in Dubai.

Anticipating a strong Irish presence following the political reawakening of the importance of food and exports from this island, I was to be seriously disappointed.

Aside from a Bord Bia/Irish Dairy Board stand surrounded by a handful of small Irish companies and a separate (impressive) Glanbia presence, we were nowhere to be seen at this important event.
