A business event featuring expert advice and solutions business owners on how to grow their footprint internationally will take place at the Burren Storehouse, Lisdoonvarna, Co. Clare, on Tuesday, November 17th, from 10am to midday.
Helping Small Businesses Go Global, hosted by global logistics company UPS and The Burren Smokehouse, will present companies with an opportunity to hear from experts at leading global logistics company UPS and how their collaboration with The Burren Smokehouse has helped the family-run Clare business to capture the full benefit of growth opportunities abroad.
UPS and the Burren Smokehouse will be on hand to discuss the programmes available to support new and early stage exporters.

The Burren Smokehouse signed a contract with global logistics company UPS in August 2015 as part of plans to broaden its overseas footprint and to ensure the Lisdoonvarna company’s products sold online can be efficiently delivered to their customers in Ireland and overseas. The deal coincided with an announcement by the producer of Burren Smoked Salmon, Trout and Mackerel products to invest €150,000 in its existing operations and to create new jobs at its production facility in Lisdoonvarna.
