Irish Retail and Wholesale Seminar Unlocks UK Export Opportunities

Irish Retail and Wholesale Seminar Unlocks UK Export Opportunities

The second in a series of successful seminars focusing on the UK retail and wholesale market, aimed at Irish food producers and manufacturers looking to explore export opportunities, took place in Cork on Thursday 24th March.

Continuing to gather momentum and interest, the event, organised by Oakland International, welcomed many Irish businesses and included a number of keynote speakers – Gordon Walker of Landmark Wholesale; Liam Gilbert from IGD; Mark Hancock from Kozy Shack; Rob Cross from The Dairy Trader; Peter Massey from May & Raeburn; Tadhg O’Donovan from Glenilen Farm; and Dean Attwell from Oakland International, summing up and then closing the day’s proceedings.

Event speakers detailed crucial elements involved when dealing with UK retailers. Oakland International’s managing director, Dean Attwell, said: “As an experienced multi temperature supply chain specialist, we are well placed to advise on the many complex factors involved when working with UK retailers and wholesalers.”

Market globalisation and economic climate conditions continue to focus industry’s attention on supply chain efficiencies. Godfrey Lydon from the Irish Exporters Association commented: “I thought the speakers were very informative and interesting and everything was very well organised.”

Dean Attwell added: “We have a successful model which is proving extremely effective at explaining and then opening new export opportunities for Irish businesses, with our Cork event once again delivering just that.”

Oakland’s next ‘Breaking in to UK Retail’ event will be held in Belfast on Thursday 16th June 2011. Further details and information, and to register your attendance at the Belfast event, contact Oakland International direct.
