Food Media offers marketing, web design and public relations services to anyone producing good food in Ireland today. If you’re busy growing, raising or cooking up food products, you’ll know that turning out the choicest cut of meat or the perfect pot of jam is only half the battle.

For many people in the food sector – and in other small businesses – the toughest part is telling potential customers about what it is you have to sell. That’s where we come in.

Whether you’re starting from scratch in terms of bringing your product to market, looking to reach new markets, or suspect your existing website or marketing plan needs an overhaul, Food Media has a service for you.

We can set up your website – if that’s what’s right for you.

We can advise on building relationships with potential and existing customers – or do it for you.

We can create content for you to use on social media – or teach you how to do it.




We can advise on all aspects of your branding, including domain name, logo, imagery and overall brand identity.

Paul Ryan’s first real job was in the fruit and vegetable section in his local Dunnes Stores in Cavan. He took the scenic route to a digital marketing business via a career in sales, banking, IT administration, online marketing and casual work abroad. His passion now is applying his marketing, sales and digital expertise to people producing quality food in Ireland today.

He established Food Media with Claire Grady as a service to producers who want to improve their sales and marketing – and need help doing so.
