Going for Growth - A Strategic Action Plan

The industry led Agri-food Strategy Board (established by the Minister of Enterprise Trade and Investment and the Minister for Agriculture and Rural Development in May 2012 to develop a strategic plan for the agri-food industry), published its Strategic Action Plan ‘Going for Growth’ on 16th May 2013.
