The British Pantry - Ireland
International brand exposure for your specialised produce.
The Great British Food Programme is proud to support the efforts of colleagues around the world in sourcing the best of British and Northern Irish produce for use within their network of British embassies, consulates and residences.
This British Pantry – Ireland initiative is a great way for UK producers to gain brand exposure in Ireland by having their high-quality products selected and consumed by staff and guests attending exclusive in-market reception events and business meetings.
How it works
Overseas Trade Officers and British embassy officials regularly use the online directory to search for British food and drink products that are readily available in their respective markets, compiling and saving lists of their favourite UK brands.
International colleagues liaise with the Great British Food Programme team in order to select and contact relevant UK producers, and to help identify where in market they can source their favourite British products.
How to get involved
UK Producers: Create a profile and join The British Pantry - Ireland initiative
As a UK producer, you must first register your company information in order to create and list a profile on our online directory.
Once registered, you’ll be able to view and join The British Pantry – Ireland listed under the initiatives section of the website. But please remember, your products must be readily available in-market before you request to join. The initiative is particularly keen to work with specialised and artisan produce.
To help ensure that The British Pantry – Ireland initiative runs as smoothly as possible it is highly recommended that you always keep your international stockists information up-to-date.
When registering on the platform, please do select all of your active export markets as this information can also be used by our overseas colleagues for prospecting purposes.
