Good Food Ireland was founded by Margaret Jeffares in November 2006, and operates as an industry-driving Irish food tourism organisation. It is the only industry group with an all-island food tourism strategy. It co-operatively markets its membership network and the people behind the food to the international and domestic tourists so as to drive Ireland forward as a food tourism destination.
Slow Food is a non-profit, eco-gastronomic member-supported organization that was founded in 1989 to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world. Slow Food is good, clean and fair food. We believe that the food we eat should taste good; that it should be produced in a clean way that does not harm the environment, animal welfare or our health; and that food producers should receive fair compensation for their work.
