Blas na hÉireann Irish Food Awards - Final Call for Entries

Jun 7, 2017, by  - Category:

Entries are about to close for this year’s Blas na hÉireann Irish Food Awards, which will take place at the prestigious Dingle Food Festival in September 2017.

Last year, more than 2500 entries were considered in what is the largest blind-tasted Food Awards in the country. 

It’s well known also that winning an Irish Food Award can be a major boost for a brand. “Every product that carries a Finalist, Gold, Silver or Bronze sticker is picked up more quickly than those without,” says Awards chairperson, Artie Clifford. “Our research has shown that the Blas accreditation has the highest recognition amongst Irish consumers and using the award logo on pack has made a significant difference to businesses.”

The closing date for entries is 14 June 2017, so there is still time! To enter, or learn more about the event, go to

GS1 Ireland is proud to support these awards and wishes all our food members who enter the very best of luck.
