National Organic Week has been held annually since 2005. Funded by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and co-ordinated by Bord Bia, the week aims to raise consumer awareness of organic food, how to recognise it when shopping and where to buy it. Cooking a tasty meal for friends and family with in-season organic ingredients is an ideal way to treat your loved ones and enjoy the freshest produce sourced in your local region.
National Organic Week provides an ideal opportunity for organic producers and processors to organise events at a national and local level to increase consumer awareness of locally produced organic food. This year there are almost 60 events taking place throughout the country to celebrate National Organic week including, organic farm walks, cookery demonatrations, barbeques, educational events, in-store tastings and much more. It promises to be a great week.
