Industry support for sustainable agriculture
Mr Pádraig Brennan, Director of Markets at Bord Bia
Bord Bia’s Origin Green programme aims to assist the Irish agriculture and food industry in producing food in the most sustainable way possible. This has allowed Ireland to become a world leader in the drive to produce food and drink products more sustainably. Suitably trained agricultural graduates are essential in driving programmes such as Origin Green and the future development of the Irish Agri-Food sector.
Mr Michael Phelan, Agribusiness Manager, Connolly’s Redmills
Sustainable agriculture requires the delivery of a solid education from the ground up. At Connolly’s Redmills, we look for graduates that have attained this quality education and are willing to learn and to travel. The world is now a small place.
