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. The move will enable Maud's Ice Cream to cut operating costs and improve efficiency, which it hopes will provide it with the additional firepower to grow its business beyond Northern Ireland.
