We’re still buzzing from last Friday where Guaranteed Irish CEO Brid O’Connell hosted a panel of our very own food and drink members.


A panel filled to the brim with expertise and passion, Maria Crowley (West Cork Business Co.), Caroline Murphy (West Cork Eggs), Cyril Walsh (St Patrick's Distillery) & Lisa Williams (Ballymaloe Foods) all shed a forever welcome light on our local food and drink industry.


From providing insights into emerging trends,


To how they’ve dealt with the ever-changing demands triggered by COVID,


All the way to their marketing strategies when it comes to standing out in saturated markets… The discussion was a masterclass in not only surviving but thriving in an ever-changing market landscape.


It’s quite fair to say that from farm-to-table experiences to handmade craftsmanship, our communities thrive on the uniqueness and authenticity of our local businesses.


So, a massive thank you to our panel for sharing their narratives highlighting the vibrant tapestry that is the Guaranteed Irish community.


We, alongside Cork on a Fork Festival were thrilled to help bring a platform to your businesses and your stories which help embody the local and invaluable spirit of enterprise we have on this little island of ours.


Let's carry this spirit forward, always remembering that every purchase of a Guaranteed Irish product and every partnership forged amongst our local businesses makes us #AllTogetherBetter


See you again next year!
