“Awareness is very low outside the UK and Ireland and consumers connect this issue with only low-value meat products,” says Aidan Cotter, Bord Bia chief executive. “It is not seen as an Irish problem.”

Comforting words, yet put othe words like say, Irish Beef, into what internet users would call, a search engine. Say for example Google.

Then unfortunatley you will see that, I am afraid, awareness is the opposite of LOW.
