What was new for 2015
Product showcase: Marketplace International 2015 featured an interactive display of world-class Irish food and drink products. Visiting buyers were given an opportunity to touch, taste and experience a wide range of products from Ireland’s sustainable food and drink producers.
Origin Green: Two years ago, Ireland introduced Origin Green, a bold promise to the world that Ireland would be a leading source of sustainably produced food and drink, independently verified at every link in the supply chain. Every day since, we have been making good on that promise. Three out of four of Ireland’s food and drink producers have already joined us. By 2016, the entire industry will be on the path to sustainability. Sourcing from Origin Green suppliers means partnering with companies that have verified commitments to sustainability. Every company exhibiting at Marketplace International is a member of Origin Green and the event provides an opportunity to learn more about the programme and how it can benefit your business.
Industry itineraries: International (non-EU) visitors were given the opportunity to lengthen their stay in Ireland to incorporate sector-specific industry itineraries.
