Bord Bia’s Inspiration Expedition programme is an experiential tool designed to discover international influences, traditional dishes, liquors and beverages which in turn stimulate new food, ingredients, drink and packaging ideas.Creative insight comes from visiting leading edge environments such as restaurants, food retailers, hotels, and anything new and exciting. The first element of any innovation project is to discover new ideas or concepts. Bord Bia can help inspire ideas and stimulate creative thinking through our Inspiration Expeditions – observational tours designed to motivate and inspire! Expeditions enable you to familiarise and stay in touch with relevant and changing consumer trends. They encourage you to uncover and experience all that is new, and also re-evaluate what is already known.
