Taste Cork at Irish Rowing Championships

Ten small TASTE CORK food and drink producers from Cork City and County showcased their products at the Irish Rowing Championships Regatta from the 13th  to 15th of July 2018 in the National Rowing Centre at Farran Wood, Co. Cork. 

Taste Cork is regional food network committed to building cooperation across the Cork food and drink sector, developing a strong and highly identifiable regional food brand that increases the visibility of Cork’s products at home and abroad and provides a focal point for the region’s vibrant food culture.

The programme, supported by Cork’s two local authorities and the Local Enterprise Office (LEO), is aligned with the overall national strategy of the Irish Government, Bord Bia and other national agencies to promote a sustainable food and drink sector.

 Joe Burke, Spokesperson for Taste Cork says:
“Having a visible and high-impact presence at a major national sporting events like the Irish rowing Championships is a very important part of ensuring that Cork continues to grow its reputation as a renowned food region.

At Taste Cork we believe it is vital to reinforce a positive message; not only about Cork’s high-quality food and drink products, but about the rich and creative food culture that makes it a really special place.

Cork’s food producers are some of our greatest ambassadors. They are passionate about what they do and about their region. Having them present at national sporting events such as this brings vibrancy, energy and gives visitors an authentic taste of Cork’s food culture.

Growing and maintaining strong regional brand recognition is also a vital part of building a sustainable food and drink sector across every community in Cork, from the city and county towns to the most rural parts of the county”.
