Statement By Minister McConalogue
The statement published on Gov.ie included a statement from Minister McConalogue that said, "I welcome the formal publication of the Food Vision 2030 Implementation Plan. Food Vision 2030 is a landmark for the Irish agri-food sector and has the potential to further enhance our agriculture, food, forestry and marine sectors in the period to 2030. Food Vision 2030 sets out an ambitious, yet achievable, pathway to sustainability in all its dimensions - environmental, economic and social.
"Implementation is well under way, with many of its actions already commenced. The Food Vision Environmental Group and the Food Vision Dairy Group are progressing priority actions. In particular, the Food Vision Dairy Group is developing a plan to manage the environmental footprint of the dairy sector in a sustainable way. At the core what we want to achieve is a roadmap to keep our farmers and fishers as well as their families and businesses doing what they do best - producing world-class food in a safe, sustainable and traceable manner."
