We have been operating on the island of Ireland for over 77 years and we seek to develop relationships with local suppliers, large and small, that share similar values to us and conduct their business in an ethical and sustainable manner. With the quality and breadth of companies signed up to this NI Chamber event we believe it will give us the opportunity to further develop our local supply base and add value to the local economy.”
