IT was an overnight wipe-out of business that has been built up over years for many of North Galway’s local food producers.

They don’t usually feature on supermarket shelves and 90 per cent of their customers were loyal chefs in hotels, restaurants and cafes who have been eager to showcase the quality artisan ingredients on their menus.
