Even though we're all still practising social distancing and most of us are working from home, we still want to help support Irish food and drink producers.
We've decided to help our readers #ShopForIreland so we'll be posting every day to highlight producers around Ireland. Get in touch on our social channels with your suggestions on who we should write about.

Moyee Coffee's buy one, gift one campaign
Founded by entrepreneurs Shane Reilly and Killian Stokes, Moyee coffee produces ethical 'FairChain' coffee, which supports African farmers. The company has committed its continued support to its farmers during the crisis, despite losing more than 90 per cent of its business due to office and foodservice closures. To help those on the frontline, Moyee has launched a buy one, gift one campaign which allows customers to purchase a one-kilogram bag of coffee and nominate someone on the frontline to receive a bag for free. The campaign isn't about Moyee making a profit, it's all about helping to stabilise supply chains for the African communities that the company works with. To find out more about the buy one, gift one campaign, click here.
