BORD BIA DRIVE TO PROMOTE EXPORTS IN EUROPE Bord Bia recently launched a new, intensified, drive to promote Ireland’s food exports aimed at broadening the industry’s market reach and boosting its exports, valued at â‚Ź8.2 billion in 2008. The task of “Broadening Export Reachâ€? has become a major strategic priority for Bord Bia in light of the challenges facing the food and drink industry as a result of the global economic downturn and the depreciation of Sterling.

“Although the UK will continue to be Ireland’s single largest export market, accounting for 43% of our exports in 2008, other Eurozone markets offer the prospect of new opportunities and more stability in the light of recent exchange rate volatility,� noted Dan Browne, Chairman of Bord Bia. Bord Bia organized a number of market building initiatives to assist the food industry broaden its export reach, including heavyweight participation at Anuga 2009 in October, the new Bord Bia Marketing Fellowship Programme, which is being run in association with the UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School, and Marketplace 2010, a one day business networking event, to build on the momentum of the Fellowship Programme. The third Marketplace Ireland event will take place in Croke Park, Dublin on February 9, and according to Bord Bia, it will be the key business development event for the food industry in 2010. It is expected the event will attract upwards of 250 European, international and also Irish, retail and foodservice buyers to meet with Irish food and drink companies. “The Irish food and drink industry is experiencing probably the most challenging period in its entire history,� explained Bord Bia Chief Executive, Aidan Cotter. “Yet, as the world will need to double food production by 2050 to meet the needs of an expand30 Irish food and drink companies participated at Anuga 2009, where Bord Bia organised and coordinated ing population, the potential for the representatives from the meat and dairy sectors to seafood and frozen foods, exhibiting across six halls. industry to expand is immense.�

BORD BIA QUALITY MARK The Bord Bia Quality Mark was introduced in the late 1980s in response to consumer demand for information on where their food comes from and how it has been produced. The Bord Bia Quality Mark means that care and attention has been given to ensuring the highest standards of quality, food safety and hygiene are involved in production. This covers the product’s journey right from the farm where it originated through to the shop shelf. Bord Bia implements Quality Assurance Schemes in the beef, lamb, pigmeat, poultry, eggs and horticulture sectors. These are integrated schemes involving primary producers and processors working in partnership. The main areas covered by the “farm assurance� element of the standards include: stockmanship; animal health and welfare; animal identification and traceability; water and feed; pasture management; environmental management and farm safety. In meat plants, the scheme lays down a number of key essential requirements, including: food safety; purchasing; welfare and transport; product identification and traceability; inspection and testing; hygiene and good manufacturing practice. These standards are in addition to existing statutory requirements and aim to ensure that the final product is wholesome, tasty, tender and succulent. The Schemes provide an objective assessment of the production standards for Irish food and horticulture. All standards are strictly enforced to ensure that consumers can trust the Bord Bia Quality Mark and be confident that the food they are serving is produced to the highest possible standard. Bord Bia works consistently to develop new standards, improve existing ones and ensure sufficient auditing and certification of all involved in the Quality Assurance Scheme. These standards safeguard the integrity of the Bord Bia Quality Mark. As well as providing reassurance to consumers in Ireland, the Bord Bia Quality Mark is also a fundamental seal of reassurance when it comes to marketing Irish food to the trade and consumers overseas. Marketing and Promotion The key objective for promoting the Quality Mark is to build consumer awareness and understanding of it across the range of products in retail outlets and to encourage shoppers to choose products in-store with the Quality Mark. In addition, the aim is to position these products as versatile, delicious and healthy options for everyday meals.

The Bord Bia Quality Mark has been marketed through a combination of above-the-line advertising (TV, radio, billboards, shopperlites, trolley handles and print media) and below the line activities (in-store point of sale material, on-pack competitions, commuter hand-outs). Each campaign has also been supported by Public Relations activities, including press releases, photo-shoots and radio competitions. In 2009, for the first time a generic Quality Mark campaign was launched to encourage consumers to choose product by giving them “peace of mind� and assurance of where the food came from. Bord Bia also undertakes quarterly audits of the proportion of products across all retailers carrying the Bord Bia Quality Mark. This is a way of monitoring the usage of the brand in-store and ensuring it is reproduced in accordance with the Bord Bia guidelines. In a consumer survey, the results found: - 76% unprompted awareness of the Bord Bia Quality Assurance logo; - 85% promoted awareness of the Bord Bia Quality Assurance logo; - 65% or respondents say that the logo reassures them about the quality of food; - 79% of respondents are more likely to buy a product if it had the Bord Bia Quality Assurance logo on it; (Source: Millward Browne, January 2009) For further information on the Bord Bia Quality Mark and Quality Assurance Schemes please log on to www.bordbia.ie

OPTIMISING MAP FOR FRUIT & VEG Researchers at the Department of Process and Chemical Engineering, UCC, have developed PACK-in-MAP, a web-based software tool (www.packinmap.com) to help companies optimise modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) for fresh and fresh-cut fruits and vegetables. The optimised packaging solution recommends the most cost effective packaging material, gas atmosphere and temperature conditions to extend shelf-life, quality and safety of produce. UCC are seeking partners to commercialise this technology with view to licensing the software on an exclusive or non-exclusive basis. The technology simulates different packaging environments and produce using a software tool. It allows the user to change the product information, packaging type, modified atmosphere, temperature and storage conditions in a matter of minutes, before proceeding to the production line. The software is available online at www. packinmap.com, where the demo version can be used upon registration.
