Around Noon To Invest £7m To Attempt To Increase Sales

Newry-based food-to-go firm Around Noon is intending to invest over £7 million and create 94 new jobs in a bid to increase its sales across Ireland and the UK.

The Irish Times quotes Around Noon chief executive Gareth Chambers as saying, "Our goal is to become the UK and Ireland’s leading manufacturer of premium 'food on the move'. We are targeting markets in Great Britain and Republic of Ireland, and aim to increase sales outside Northern Ireland by over £13 million per annum over the next couple of years."

Invest NI Offer

Around Noon has been offered £592,000 from Invest NI to put towards its latest investment project.

The Irish Times quotes Invest NI director of scaling Grainne McVeigh as saying, "Invest NI is keen to support companies with potential to scale, based on a focused export strategy. Around Noon has grown from a small family business to a company with a multi-million pound turnover, and, with this investment, will be well-placed to take advantage of further opportunities in the 'food-to-go' market within Great Britain and Ireland."
