“Together we share best practice through events and provide mentoring support to other north-west businesses looking to get started with exporting or to grow their export markets.
“What More is grateful for the support we received from UKTI [UK Trade and Investment] and DIT when we started out exporting in 2008. Being an Export Champion is the perfect way for us to help other companies across the UK who are in the position that we were in back then.”
