A business programme aimed at helping small food and drink producers to export sales and link to new customers in GB and ROI markets has been launched.

The Food Heartland Export Support Programme, funded by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council will support 15 small (no more than 10 employees) food and drink producers located within the borough, who are export ready, with all the necessary support they need to take their products outside of Northern Ireland.

Speaking at the launch Chief Executive for Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council, Roger Wilson said: “The Food Heartland Export Programme is an excellent programme which will benefit 15 small food and drinks businesses to grow beyond Northern Ireland. It will support and showcase businesses under the Food Heartland brand as well as provide access to potential new customers at a number of national trade shows in Republic of Ireland and Great Britain.”

Applications for the Food Heartland Export Programme are limited to 15 places and will close on Friday 9th September at 5pm. Interested businesses from the borough can complete an application form online at www.foodheartland.com or contact Lara Goodall Consulting on 028 9083 9205.
