Ulster Bank supports local agri-food firms at the Balmoral Show

  • Ulster Bank is showcasing some of Northern Ireland's most innovative new agri-food companies at this year's Balmoral Show, which runs until Saturday 18th May.

    Northern Ireland has always had a strong agricultural heritage, with specialist food and drink items being exported from the region worldwide. The local agri-food industry is growing rapidly with new emerging startups developing new products for export, and Ulster Bank is showcasing some of the best of them right now at this year's Balmoral Show.

    The bank is providing space at its marquee over the four days of the show and allowing some of its business customers to exhibit free of charge, helping to raise Northern Ireland's profile and allowing smaller firms an opportunity to exhibit that they might not otherwise get. As the main sponsor of the show this year, Ulster Bank's marquee is in a prime position right next to the main main arena entrance.

    Many of those exhibiting are also part of the Ulster Bank Entrepreneur Accelerator, while others are prominent business clients of the bank. Companies exhibiting include sweet producer Aunt Sandra’s, potato crisp maker Wolff and Woodsman, Rossi’s Ice-cream, Jack’s Fudge, hot sauce creator Totally Hot NI, and a range of other small local businesses.

    Lynsey Cunningham, Regional Director, Entrepreneurship at Ulster Bank, says: "Supporting small businesses and encouraging entrepreneurship is an important focus for Ulster Bank. We are pleased to be able to provide these businesses with a great marketing opportunity at the show and the chance to showcase and sell their produce to the many people who attend."
