Bord Bia, the Irish Food Board in charge of promoting Irish food and drinks, has officially launched its Spirit of Ireland drinks campaign in Nigeria as part of the Irish government’s 2nd trade mission to West Africa.

The Trade Mission was organized to leverage the success of Irish food and drinks exports to West Africa, of which Nigeria accounts for 36% in Irish dairy, seafood, and drinks.

The 2-day Trade Mission in Lagos, sees the Irish Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue, engage in a series of high-level meetings with the Ministry for Agriculture and Food Security, the United Nations (UN) World Food Programme and a roundtable discussion with the UN Food and Agricultural Organisation. The visit will also see the Minister and Jim O’Toole, the CEO of Bord Bia, engage in a series of commercial meetings and trade engagements aimed at strengthening Ireland’s food market position and business ties in Nigeria.

At the first African launch of the Spirit of Ireland campaign in Lagos, the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue T.D., said: “Given the renaissance Irish spirits is having globally and its growth trajectory in West Africa, launching Spirit of Ireland in Nigeria was the next obvious choice. The programme has been unveiled in seven global markets to date and today’s launch demonstrates Ireland’s commitment to grow the Irish spirits category in the Nigerian market.”
