The Bord Bia mission statement is: “To drive the commercial success of a world-class food, drink and horticulture industry through market insight and partnership with industry.”
The food and beverage industry is Ireland’s oldest industry and biggest employer, and is set to see major investment, innovation and growth over the coming years. Year on year growth for 7 years in a row has seen our exports grow to over €11bn. Many global companies are choosing to locate their innovation, R&D, and technology centres in Ireland.

To achieve their growth ambitions, they are looking for appropriate, novel, insight-led innovations to launch in Ireland and abroad. We want to help them by building world-class talent in the area of innovation and design thinking* for the food, beverage and horticulture industry.

If you are a graduate with a primary degree (or significant experience) and would and would now like to embark on the next chapter in your career in the food industry, this opportunity has your name written all over it. Bord Bia is looking for talented individuals to take an MSc in Design Innovation while doing practical, hands-on innovation projects with leading Irish food, beverage and horticulture organisations. We want to create, train and educate the next generation of global consumer-focussed innovators.
