Ireland Food & Drink Report

BMI View:   We continue to believe that Ireland's economic recovery will gather momentum in 2014 with the economy growing at an annual rate of 2.1%, followed by 2.3% the following year, and increasing each year in our five-year forecast, driven by a strong performance in the manufacturing sector and exports. Gradually easing unemployment and rising wages should support an increase in household disposable incomes, which we expect to have positive implications for consumer spending on food and drink.
