We just really enjoy advising on it, it’s such a thriving sector in Ireland, there’s energy and optimism in it and you can sense that from the clients.
The food, beverage and agriculture sector is the jewel in Ireland’s Smart Economy. The agri-food and agri-business sector is Ireland’s largest indigenous industry. The value of Ireland’s food and drink exports has increased more than 64% in the last eight years. The value of Irish beverage exports alone in 2018 was €1.5bn. The sector is fast growing and faces increasing challenges from regulation, complex consumer and competition law requirements, supply chain logistics, health and safety issues and environmental responsibilities.
At Philip Lee we have unrivalled experience in advising clients in the food, beverage and agriculture sector. We understand the industry issues and we enjoy the area. With the deregulation of milk quotas in 2015 and the opening up of an increased number of international markets to Irish food and beverage suppliers, the opportunities have never been greater.
