Four Northern Ireland food and drink companies have been assisted by Invest Northern Ireland to win new business in international markets, estimated to be worth nearly half a million pounds collectively. Niche Drinks, BFree, CocoMojo and Rooney Fish have secured orders to supply their products in China, the United Arab Emirates and Europe.

Alison Gowdy, Invest NI’s Director of Trade, says: “This is a fantastic result for Northern Ireland’s biggest manufacturing industry and showcases the increasing appetite around the world for Northern Ireland food and drink. We are delighted that our businesses are becoming ever more visible and ambitious in taking their products to growing world markets with Northern Ireland food and drink exports valued at £1.2 billion in the last 12 months.”

She continues: “All of the businesses have put substantial time and resources into fostering relationships with global customers which has helped them to secure these deals. As a direct result of our programme of business activities in China many Northern Ireland companies are reaping significant benefits, with Rooney Fish and CocoMojo now securing their first deals in this market, which is hugely encouraging.”

Niche Drinks, BFree, CocoMojo and Rooney Fish benefited from a range of Invest NI support including food business development guidance, trade advice and from participating on Invest NI trade missions and exhibitions to profile their products on a global stage.
