Con­sul Gen­eral of Ire­land

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - CITY PANORAMA -

Ire­land, through its food pro­mo­tional board, has de­cided to show­case our high-qual­ity Ir­ish food and drinks. Ire­land is known as “Food Is­land” and has a long track of record of im­port­ing high­qual­ity and very safe pro­duce to China.

At­ten­dees of CIIE will be able to see the huge range and qual­ity of our foods and drinks, in­clud­ing Ir­ish beef, seafood, dairy pro­duce and craft beers and whiskeys. What we have been do­ing al­ready is im­port­ing ex­cel­lent qual­ity Ir­ish seafood like oys­ters to China. The feed­back of con­sumers here has been over­whelm­ingly pos­i­tive.

Ir­ish beef is one of the best prod­ucts that we have. Ir­ish cat­tle are raised out­doors for al­most a whole year, eat­ing high-qual­ity Ir­ish grass in a very nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment. I am glad that CIIE is tak­ing place in Shang­hai, a city renowned for its trade with the out­side world and its open­ness and in­ter­na­tional spirit.
