Performance and Prospects Report 2021/2022

2021 was the second year of significantly disrupted and abnormal trading and market realities, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. The ongoing pandemic also continued to change what consumers are buying and how they are buying it with continued disruption to the foodservice channel evident in key markets across the EU. 2021 also marked the first year of trading with the UK outside the EU’s customs union. In this context – the value of Irish food and drink exports increased 4% in 2021 to be worth €13.5 billion.
