Regional Food Programme opens for applications

Applications are invited from not-for-profit groups and regional development agencies as well as registered charities to apply for the 2020-21 Northern Ireland Regional Food Programme (NIRFP).

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

In 2019 the NIRFP awarded just under £140,000 for the delivery of 20 projects, providing local producers with showcasing opportunities at a range of agri-food events across Northern Ireland.



This included events held as part of the Taste the Island initiative.

Applications are now open for projects taking place from 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021, and must be submitted by 12 noon on Friday 31 January 2020.



Awards will be subject to budget availability.
