A study of cross-border flows within the agri-food sector: A snapshot of four border counties

This report represents a key piece of research which is intended to offer a detailed analytical snapshot of cross-border activity within the agri-food sector, focusing on small-scale enterprises in four border counties: Armagh, Down, Monaghan and Louth. Whilst the picture it presents should not be taken as representative of the entire sector, it is nevertheless envisaged that the core findings of this study can be used to inform future strategic planning within the agri-food sector on both sides of the border, strengthening the future policy development of the agri-food sector on a cross-border basis, stimulating informed dialogue and debate between policy makers and industry representatives, and facilitating innovative approaches to evolving the sector within an increasingly competitive global market place.
