The campaign directs consumers to the Bord Bia website, www.bordbia.ie/itsgardentime, where a range of tips and advice is available. The GLAS trade show, supported by Bord Bia, will also return this year to provide an environment geared for business and networking and is attended by key buyers and decision makers in the retail sector.
