The business of Pub Food is growing exponentially and is expected to continue growing through 2017 and beyond. Publicans are branching into food as a way to add value and increase revenue. They recognize that lifestyles are changing and the traditional way of doing things may not work into the future.
The Vintners’ Federation of Ireland looks after the interests of over 4,000 members nationwide and providing members with expert information and ‘know-how’ about the food business is one of its main priorities. The VFI is partnering with Blathnaid Bergin from The Business of Food to run her ‘Business of Pub Food’ courses in Galway and Cork over the coming weeks. Blathnaid has successfully delivered this tailor-made program to VFI members in the midlands, although some travelled from as far as Achill Island.
Blathnaid Bergin is honoured to have been chosen by the VFI to design and deliver the Business of Pub Food to its members.
