On Tuesday, KPMG and the Irish Farmers Journal held a breakfast briefing to highlight the publication of the 2015 KPMG and Irish Farmers Journal Agribusiness report.

Eoin Lowry, editor of this year’s agribusiness report, entitled 'Feeding 50 million People in an Upside-Down World', says it outlines the key trends that are changing the world. "We have identified four macro trends that affect Irish agribusinesses. This is particularly timely as we move into a flatter world with the abolition of milk quotas and the opening up of trade barriers. The report looks at how people are changing – where they live, what they eat and how they spend their time."

He added that the Irish Farmers Journal is "delighted to partner with KPMG in producing this publication, which aims to improve our understanding of the challenges faced by Irish agribusinesses."

The event was live streamed from the Royal Dublin Society on Tuesday morning and a recording can be watched below.

The entire report will be available to read online from 10 pm on the evening of Wednesday 20 May and in the Irish Farmers Journal print edition in shops nationwide on Thursday morning.
