Annual Review and Outlook for Agriculture, Food and the Marine 2019

The Annual Review and Outlook provides up-to-date information and statistical analysis from a variety of sources, to provide a detailed overview of Ireland’s agri-food sector and an outlook for the future.

A strong evidence base is essential for policy formation and implementation. The information and statistics included in the Annual Review and Outlook is intended to assist in policy analysis and debate in the sector.

The agri-food sector is Ireland’s most important indigenous industry, playing a vital role in Ireland’s economy. Irish food is produced by thousands of farmers, fishermen and agri-food companies around the country.
This locally produced food was exported to over 180 markets worldwide and was valued at €13.7 billion in 2018.. The sector contributed 7.5% of GNI*in 2018 and provided employment for 173,000 people, particularly important in rural and coastal areas.

This year’s publication includes chapters on the agri-food sector & the economy, farm incomes & structures, agricultural commodities & inputs, trade, the environment, forestry, marine and EU & international policy.
