GEOfood Producers

GEOfood in the Burren and Cliffs of Moher is still in its infancy. To date, we have 9 producers who have signed up to be GEOfood members, and who will carry the Burren and Cliffs of Moher UNESCO Global Geopark GEOfood Label on their relevant produce. We anticipate this number to grow significantly over the coming months.

GEOfood producers:
