Dean Attwell, managing director, Oakland International says: “Having successfully held this type of event previously in Ireland we are well-placed to understand Ireland’s retailer market, able to support UK producers wishing to explore the many opportunities available.”

Barriers to export from the UK have primarily been supply chain costs and Irish retail compliance with suppliers in the UK acknowledged for having high quality products and viewed by the Irish as a preferred ‘local’ country of origin,

Gaining first-hand insight in to Ireland’s marketplace is a must for all UK producers with industry’s attention focused on supply chain efficiencies, Attwell says.
