A panel of industry experts will shortlist entries to five businesses. Bank of Ireland will work with each of the finalists to shoot a video in which they sell their ‘menu’ for Taste of Dublin for the final stage of the competition which comes down to an online public vote. The videos will be shared and promoted through the Bank’s online channels from 5 April, with the finalists encouraged to rally support from the public. The overall winner will be revealed on 19 April, 2016.
Speaking at the launch of the 2016 competition, former winner Marty Brennan, from My Organics said the competition is “a superb opportunity for any food business”.
