Bord Bia has partnered with GIY to support communities and the public to grow their own food such as sponsoring the production of our series on RTE Grow Cook Eat. GIY have also teamed up annually with Bord Bia to bring “Food Matters” to Bloom, Ireland’s annual horticulture festival which has been deemed one of the nations’ favourite summer/garden events.
Having amalgamated with Bord Glas in 2004, Bord Bia is responsible for the development of the horticulture industry in Ireland. Horticulture is divided into two main sectors – the food sector (e.g. fruit and vegetables including mushrooms, potatoes and glasshouse crops) and the amenity sector (e.g. trees, shrubs, flowers, and bulbs). In addition to working with industry, Bord Bia provide online resources for consumers to make the most of their gardens.
