Food, Drink, Agri-business & Bloodstock 

 Irish Farmers Journal / KPMG Agribusiness Report 2015

Ireland’s agri sector is worth billions to our economy and provides thousands of jobs. It’s a sector with huge further potential in terms of adding value and export growth.


We’re delighted to partner with Irish Farmers Journal to bring you the third annual IFJ/KPMG Agribusiness Report launched at Dublin’s RDS on Tuesday 19 May 2015. 


Our report is assessing the key issues and opportunities for Irish agribusiness with particular perspectives on how technology will impact consumption patterns and the growth of the world’s middle classes in emerging markets and the implications for the agri sector.

Food, Drink, Agri-business & Bloodstock
