The Leitrim Food Strategy directly responds to Food Harvest 2020’s recommendation to invest in ideas, knowledge and skills, encourage innovation and creativity, and recognise new opportunities for collaboration across the food supply chain and with other competitors.
Food is something that connects us all. It is a driver of employment and health and a significant part of Leitrim’s economic, social, environmental and cultural identity. This Food Strategy, funded by Leitrim County Council, has been careful to play to our strengths. The focus is on being locally relevant, pragmatic, scalable and implementable. We start the Strategy by counting blessings – what makes us special. And there is a lot.
