Sharing the Devenish Nutrition export story
Key representatives of a number of top Northern Ireland businesses have gathered at the Merchant Hotel in Belfast to gain advice on how to maximise export potential.
The roundtable dinner was the latest event in the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s Danske Bank Export First programme.
Speaking at the dinner, keynote speaker Owen Brennan, Executive Chairman of Devenish Nutrition, said:
“Export has always been part of our business plan. Putting it into a very simple perspective, if we look at the UK and Republic of Ireland market as our home market, and if we confine ourselves to our home market, we’d be turning our back on 98% of the global market for what we do. That has never struck me as good odds.
“You don’t need to achieve a very big success in an international market to make a very positive difference to any business.”
Commenting on the programme, Sandra Scannell, Head of Business Services at NI Chamber, said:
“The purpose of the Danske Bank Export First programme is to inspire more companies in Northern Ireland to export. Events like these, which take place in an informal setting, showcase how local businesses have had successes in new markets and how they have overcome problems along the way.”
Aaron Ennis, Head of Corporate Acquisition at Danske Bank, added:
“Export First has one key objective – to help export ambition become export achievement for more local businesses. At Dankse Bank our approach is to combine the expertise of highly experienced specialists with innovative products and tools for exporters.”
The Danske Bank Export First programme is a business led support initiative by Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry in partnership with Danske Bank and airlines partner Etihad.
