Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue, T.D, said:

“This second Annual Report for the Food Vision 2030 process highlights progress across the agri-food sector as we continue to improve all the strands of sustainability – environmental, economic and social. As Chair of the High-Level Implementation Committee, I want to commend all the stakeholders on the progress that is being made right across agriculture, fisheries, forestry and our processing sectors. Food Vision is a transformative roadmap for the agri-food sector, developed by the sector for the sector, using a food systems approach. The Report highlights the depth and breadth of activity as we continue to work collaboratively in pursuing our ambitions to make Ireland a world leader in Sustainable Food Systems.”


The Annual Report gives an overview of progress to date and highlights some of the key achievements. It also provides an update on the work of the HLIC and the Environmental Working Sub-Group. Food Vision contains four primary missions, 22 goals and 218 actions for the agri-food sector to work towards in the period to 2030. To date, 20 actions (9%) are complete, 121 actions (56%) have substantial action undertaken, 75 actions (34%) have commenced and are progressing.


Among the key achievements in the Annual Report over the last year are the launch of Ireland’s new Forestry Programme; a new Horticulture Strategy; a Bioeconomy Action Plan; a new Fertiliser Database; a National Dialogue on Women in Agriculture; a Food Waste Prevention Roadmap; Ireland’s 4th National Biodiversity Action Plan; a Strategic Plan for Sustainable Aquaculture Development; the establishment of An Rialálaí Agraibhia (Agri-Food Regulator); a National Genotyping Programme; a Suckler Carbon Efficiency Programme; a Dairy Beef Welfare Scheme; and securing Irish Grass Fed Beef as a Protected Geographical Indication.
