The Food Vision 2030 Strategy is a new ten year Strategy for the Irish agri-food sector (taken to include primary agriculture, food and drink processing and manufacturing, fisheries, aquaculture and fish processing, forestry and forestry processing and the equine sector).
Its Vision is that Ireland will become a world leader in Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) over the next decade. This will deliver significant benefits for the Irish agri-food sector itself, for Irish society and the environment. In demonstrating the Irish agri-food sector meets the highest standards of sustainability – economic, environmental, and social – this will also provide the basis for the future competitive advantage of the sector.
By adopting an integrated food systems approach, Ireland will seek to become a global leader of innovation for sustainable food and agriculture systems, producing safe, nutritious, and high-value food that tastes great, while protecting and enhancing our natural and cultural resources and contributing to vibrant rural and coastal communities and the national economy.
The Strategy consists of 22 Goals, grouped into four high-level Missions for the sector to work toward: 1) A Climate Smart, Environmentally Sustainable Agri-Food Sector 2) Viable and Resilient Primary Producers with Enhanced Well-Being 3) Food Which is Safe, Nutritious And Appealing, Trusted And Valued at Home and Abroad 4) An Innovative, Competitive and Resilient Agri-Food Sector, Driven by Technology And Talent
