Membership of Boyne Valley Flavours

There has never been a better time to join Boyne Valley Flavours, with the generous joint support of both Meath and Louth Co. Councils, their respective LEOs and our dedicated Food Development Officer- Gráinne McKeown. Our aim for 2021, and beyond, is to promote the Boyne Valley region as a “Foodie Destination” under the one brand, Discover Boyne Valley Flavours. This is achieved through a collaborative effort of promoting local food & drink producers, food/drink tourism activities or food events through our Boyne Valley Food Series and showcasing the eateries in the region that provide a local food offering through our Place on a Plate campaign.

Join us, and become part of a successful regional food family, where friendships are forged, new ideas are ‘spawned’, business advice & inspiration is shared with like-minded people.
