Minister Wallace welcomes Centra support for Irish Food Industry

Speaking at the presentation of the Centra Awards for Quality and Hygiene, Ms. Mary Wallace T.D., Minister for State at the Department of Agriculture and Food, acknowledged the continued support of the Musgrave SuperValu Centra Group to the Irish food industry.

She went on say that the agri-food sector remains "our biggest indigenous industry and a major contributor to the economic and social viability of rural areas. Maintaining a vibrant agri-food sector is in my view an essential component of a successful national and rural development strategy and provides consumers with a range of produce meeting the most exacting standards of safety, enjoyment and convenience."

The Minister added that "The Centra brand is one of the great success stories of Irish food retailing with over 90% of groceries supplied by Irish Companies".
