The final took place at GROW HQ, Farronshoneen, Waterford  where the five final teams took part in a "Dragon's Den" style presentation with Mary Ellen and Róisín being announced winners.

The aim behind the initiative was to 'discover Ireland’s next young food entrepreneurs'.

Secondary schools across the country were invited to take part to grow their own peas and to devise a soup recipe which will be produced by Cully & Sully.

GIY (Grow it Yourself) teamed up with Cully & Sully, one of Ireland’s biggest food business success stories to create the Give Peas a Chance campaign to foster a spirit of food entrepreneurship in Irish secondary schools.

Through this initiative growing kits were delivered to 7,500 students across the country. The winning school, St Augustine's  College was awarded a prize pot of €5,000 which includes a €3,000 food garden for their school as well as two iPads for Mary Ellen and Róisín, while Ms McGann received a voucher for Ballymaloe House, a well deserved reward for all her hard work and encouragement she gave to her students over the course of the competition. 

Congrats and well done to all including Mr David McCarthy who accompanied Ms McGann and the students to the final.
