Team Ireland in South Africa
The Embassy is just part of what can be described as "Team Ireland in Southern Africa". The Team includes Irish Aid, Enterprise Ireland, Tourism Ireland, the Irish Dairy Board and Bord Bia.
Enterprise Ireland is the Irish state agency responsible for developing and growing indigenous Irish enterprises in world markets. Enterprise Ireland opened their offices in Johannesburg in March 2013.
Tourism Ireland is the agency with responsibility for promoting tourism to Ireland. Their website includes a wide variety of information about holidaying in Ireland.
Ornua, formerly The Irish Dairy Board is a cooperative enterprise exporting dairy products. Their offices at Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape Province, were opened in May 2014.
Bord Bia acts as a link between Irish food, drink and horticulture suppliers and existing and potential customers throughout the world. They have a particular interest in South Africa which is a high-potential market for Irish food exports.
