Thank you for visiting this survey. You may be familiar with The Food Coast Donegal brand https://donegalfoodcoast.ie/, a food initiative facilitated by Local Enterprise Office Donegal and the local food community.  The objective of this brand is to help grow and promote local food within the region. The strategy for this food brand is currently being reviewed. As part of the consultation process we would welcome your views on where you feel the future of food in Donegal should be. 
                                               
Consumer/public views are really important to this survey and your views will help to guide Local Enterprise Office Donegal and other agencies on ways to enhance the food offer within the County in line with your expectations.  Your views are important to us and will be taken into account.

This survey is for members of the public only. Food producers, café/restaurant owners and other food industry stakeholders should not complete this version of the survey.
