Regional Food Programme opens for applications

The 2018/19 Northern Ireland Regional Food Programme (NIRFP), which is a DAERA-funded programme to help raise the profile of quality regional food, is now open for applications.

This important funding programme within the food and drink sector encourages collaboration between all sectors and representative bodies within the local food industry.



The programme has supported many local events and initiatives by providing financial support in three key areas – regional fairs/exhibitions, seminars/workshops, and information programmes.

Last year NIRFP awarded just under £200,000 to 22 projects, providing local producers with showcasing opportunities at a range of agri-food events across Northern Ireland and supporting the development of a number of food and drink networks.



Applications for projects taking place from 1st April 2018 to 31st March 2019 will open on Friday 5th January.

Closing date for completed applications is noon on 14th February. 



Awards will be subject to a national budget allocation being agreed.
