Agri-Food Industry

The agri-food sector is one of Ireland's most important indigenous industries, employing in the region of 50,000 people directly, as well as providing the primary outlet for the produce of 128,000 family farms. These jobs are dispersed throughout all regions of Ireland, especially rural areas. The sector accounts for half of purchased Irish goods and services by the manufacturing industry and just over half of exports by indigenous manufacturing industries.
