About All-Ireland Business Foundation

Irish businesses cannot be complacent.

In a globalized world, customers have a choice. And they use this choice to opt for the highest quality, efficiency and convenience - wherever it can be found.

The All-Ireland Business Foundation exists to promote meritocracy and encourage businesses to aspire to reach the highest level.

The Foundation is responsible for identifying and accrediting best-in-class Irish businesses, overseeing the All-Ireland Business Awards, Summit and promoting peer dialogue among members.

The Foundation offers accredited businesses with opportunities to engage in peer-dialogue, collaboration and support to each other. It allows them to attain and, most importantly, maintain the highest verified standards for the benefit of both businesses and consumers.

The Foundation promotes its accredited businesses to Irish consumers, giving them confidence and reassurance when making their purchasing decisions.

The Foundation is led by an advisory board made up of a panel of volunteer judges, mentors and business experts. The independent adjudication panel is chaired by Dr. Briga Hynes, head of the Kemmy Business School at the University of Limerick and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute.

Becoming an All-Star Accredited

All-Star Accredited companies are progressive indigenous Irish businesses that meet the highest standards of verified performance, trust and customer centricity.

The three pillars of accreditation are Performance, Trust and Customer Centricity. Each requirement within the three areas of “Pillars”, must be satisfied to become an All-Star Accredited business.

Honoured by the TRIBE

Those that have come through a rigorous process to attain the All-Star standard become part of The Register of Irish Business Excellence (TRIBE). TRIBE members are identified publicly by the All-Star insignia, the symbol of Customer Confidence.

Ongoing gatherings via the CEO Forum, All-Ireland Business Awards and All-Star Accreditation and the Foundation’s annual flagship event The All-Ireland Business Summit allow TRIBE members to share experiences, explore opportunities and grow business both locally and internationally.
