Boyne Valley Food Innovation District




The purpose of the Boyne Valley Food Innovation District (Designated Activity Company), herein after referred to as the BVFID is to help build scalable food companies by focusing on the commercial needs of a changing global marketplace and in doing so support rural and regional economic development at a local, regional and national level.

The BVFID projects key partners include (but are not limited to); Meath Enterprise, Meath County Council, Meath LEO, ISIF, UCD, DIT, Maynooth University, Epicom, Superlife along with the other members of the BVFID Advisory Board. This includes senior officials from Enterprise Ireland, Bord Bia, IDA, Teagasc as well as industry leading entrepreneurs such as Ray Coyle, Michael Carey, Owen Brennan and Larrin Murrin.



The BVFID, in collaboration with its various partners, will access validated channels to global markets, where real opportunities exist, in order to secure contracts for Irish food products. The BVFID will then seek to match these opportunities/contracts to existing Irish SME food companies (across all regions) who possess the necessary capability and ambition to scale into global markets. If BVFID cannot find the companies to match to the opportunities/contracts and scale, then BVFID will build a new start-up food company to respond to the market need.

This is a ‘market led’ and ‘commercially focused’ approach to scaling Irish SME food companies – Scalable by Design – that has the potential to generate significant economic wealth and social prosperity across all regions.
