In Gort, Co. Galway, Stephen Conmy spoke to local food and drink business owners and caught up with Rachel Allen to chat about Irish food trends.
ThinkBusiness went west recently to an Enterprise Town event to see what the business people of Gort were doing.
Here we found an eclectic mix of small businesses, all with one thing in mind – growing their firms in a sustainable way.
We met Colin Rogers, owner of One Stop Printing; the great Clare Colohan of the Galway Food Company; Aidan Murphy from Galway Hooker beers; and the passionate restaurant owner Fanya O’Donoghue from Sasta Restaurant.
We also caught up with celebrity cook and author Rachel Allen. We asked her about the latest Irish food trends, what it takes to start a food business, and what Irish foods she simply couldn’t live without.
