Massive Applause for Agri-Food

It’s been a time where we’ve all been forced to make changes and adapt. At Food NI, we’ve been blown away by the adaptability, innovation and determination of our agri-food industry in the face of COVID-19. Whenever we needed them the most, they continued to make sure we had food and drink on our tables!

To say thank you, we’re launching a 4-week digital competition to share and celebrate the stories of our local agri-food champions.  Those good news stories will be made into a video highlighting what so many have done. We’re calling it a massive virtual applause, so the more stories the better!

We want to hear your good news stories about those artisans who made your life easier by  delivering to you from a farm shop, who updated their website so you could order your favourites online, who supported the vulnerable or who just put a smile on your face.

“It’s been so heartening to see how so many of our members have just rolled up their sleeves and got on with it. They have made a real difference to so many people and have also highlighted how important our local agri-food industry is” said Food NI CEO Michele Shirlow.

“We really want to hear from the public how their efforts have helped them.  It’s a way of showing our appreciation to those producers and chefs.”

It doesn’t matter how big or small, just email us and you will be in with the chance of winning a local food hamper to the value of £20.

One winner will be chosen at random each week for four weeks.
