The Irish Organic Association met with the EU Commissioner for Agriculture Janusz Wojciechowski on Monday and discussed the potential of developing the organic sector in Ireland to realise its target of 7.5%. The meeting was held on Rathvale Organic Farm which is owned by Eddie and Swantje Kiernan. Market potential and public procurement were some of issues discussed by Gillian Westbrook and Commissioner Wojciechowski. The Kiernan family explained their crop production and the markets they supply.
The Irish Organic Association would sincerely like to thank Eddie and Swantje and their children Conor, Brian, Saoirse and Gearoid for the hospitality and welcome!
Minister Hackett, EU Commissioner for Agriculture Janusz Wojciechowski and Gillian Westbrook CEO of the Irish Organic Association.
