Irish Taste Club – Bringing The Taste of Ireland Home.
In recent years, Ireland has watched its food and drink industry undergo a complete cultural revolution. The Irish people have moved away from the large multinational food companies who have dominated the industry here for decades, and returned in their droves to small, local, artisan producers.
This change in consumer behaviour has ushered in a new generation of small cottage industries. This growth has seen Ireland become increasingly popular as a food destination, with walking tours popping up all over the country. To find the best tours in Ireland have a look at Adventure Trails Ireland.
A major difficulty faced by these producers has been in getting their products to the people who want them, culinary tours like Irish Food Trails offer a way for producers and restaurants to showcase their work and increase awareness.

John Egan, Founder
I was brought up on a farm in the west of Ireland. We have always reared beef but the farming industry has changed and it’s becoming more and more difficult for farmers to survive off the land. Lots have had to diversify to make ends meet. This negative has actually turned into a positive because it has led to a whole new wave of Irish artisan food producers.
After graduating, I was eager to explore the world and initially, my career path led me to Beijing, China. There I saw how food is produced, packaged, and supplied to millions of people. I also saw how something essential lost when that food is mass-produced by faceless companies. That something is hard to define, but becomes a lot more obvious when you see a small farmer tending to his livestock, a chocolatier carefully shaping each chocolate, or a jam-maker painstakingly select each fruit. Their pride in their family name and the passion they bring to the table can never be replicated by a large scale company.
While abroad, I got a different perspective on my home country. I realized what is really unique about Ireland. It’s our climate, our pristine landscape and our world-class ingredients. Together, they make for food and drink products with real character and unrivaled taste. After that year-long stint in Asia I returned to Irish soil to take up a position in Kerry Group. This Irish agri-food business sells top Irish food brands and ingredients worldwide.
