Welcome to Laois Taste

Laois Taste is a diverse group of 26 Laois based Food & Drink Producers dedicated to promoting the Laois Food & Drink Sector through the Laois TASTE brand, locally, nationally and internationally. Founded in 2019 as a collaborative effort between Laois Food & Drinks Producers, Laois County Council, Local Enterprise Office Laois and Laois Partnership to support and promote local provenance, quality, growth and development of the Laois food sector. Our aim is to promote local provenance, strengthen the Laois food industry and transform Laois into one of Ireland’s top food destinations.

The Laois TASTE Provenance Scheme certifies Laois Food Producers and also Supporters that sell Laois made produce. The aim of the Laois TASTE Producers Provenance Scheme is to encourage local provenance and to create opportunities for new food businesses, support the capacity of existing food businesses in the County while also promoting the Laois Food Industry to a wider audience. The Laois TASTE Brand is a mark of origin and allows consumers to identify food which is produced in Laois or businesses which sell Laois made produce.

We welcome all local Producers/ Retailers/Food Service Operators to sign up to the scheme and join us in bringing Laois Food & Drink to the forefront and establishing our county as a top food destination in Ireland.
