First ‘Food Coast’ plaques awarded by the Donegal Local Enterprise Office


The Local Enterprise Office in Donegal says promoting the county as a food destination will be a priority in 2017.

This week, nine Donegal companies became the first in the county to receive Donegal Food Coast plaques, a new brand which shows they are either a Donegal-based producer or a business sourcing produce from Donegal producers.

Head of Enterprise Michael Tunney says the Food Coast is tied in with a wider effort to make Donegal famous as a food county.

As part of Donegal’s Good Food Initiative, Mr Tunney says an important workshop is taking place later this month in the Silver Tassie Hotel.............
