UK: Belfast ice-cream maker invests in new factory, targets export market
Belfast company Maud's Ice Cream is aiming to triple its exports by 2003 and has invested £750,000 (US$1.7m) to help it meet this goal. The company has relocated its production facility from Glenoe, near Larne, as well as its distribution centre in Antrim to a new 10,000 sq ft purpose-built factory in Carrickfergus.
