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 2.3 % , followed by 2.5 % the following year , driven by an improving export outlook and recovery in private consumption. Gradually easing unemployment and rising wages should support a modest increase in household disposable incomes , which we expect to have positive implications for consumer spending on food and drink.
