Woodland Group, the independent global freight forwarding and supply chain specialist, is expanding into the food and beverage logistics industry in Ireland. Ireland is leading the way in Europe as the largest net exporter of dairy ingredients, beef and lamb in Europe with Ireland exporting €10.5 billion worth of drink and beverage goods in 2015 to 120 countries.

The manufacture of food and drink products is Ireland’s most important indigenous industry with a turnover approaching €24 billion, which explains why it is such an important area for Woodland Group, says Kevin Brady, Managing Director Woodland Group Ireland.

Woodland Group is well poised to fulfill this need with a strong, flexible global network that has the skilled workforce to support our customers fully. Our core values focus heavily on product knowledge, service and operational excellence,” he points out. “Our increasing investment into the food and beverage sector marks an exciting new chapter for the Woodland Group and believe our renowned tailor made solutions will offer clear and meaningful benefits to those involved in the industry.”
