"I have no hesitation in recommending Declan Ennis and Export Works. We briefed Export Works to identify export opportunities for our business in the Mediterranean region. This involved assessing market attractiveness, identifying distributors, arranging and attending initial distributor meetings and establishing supply chain solutions. Declan's expertise and knowledge was invaluable in fast tracking our understanding and access to this region."
Simon Walker, Managing Director, Kepak Convenience Division
"Mr Chambers has a wealth of experience and knowledge both in the dairy/ food industry and in bringing new products to market.
This helped us in identifying key markets, asses our options for the best route to market and product
development. His insights facilitated us in teasing out new ideas and strategies, always pushing us for
alternative views and to answer the difficult questions. Since 2010, our product has gone through a major re development, re branding and has secured
European, FDA and ATEX approval. We have won a number of high profile clients and are currently
exporting to Malaysia".
Ceara Mc Neela, Director, Asgard Industrial Systems.
"Norma is an excellent R&D professional who has strong knowledge of dairy technology and innovation. She goes the extra mile not only to secure the best technical and commercial solutions but also to anticipate operational issues that you will inevitably encounter manufacturing and in your day-to day dealings with suppliers/partners. She is a strong team builder and coach”.
John McAughtrie, R&D Director, Meat & Dairy, Kerry Foods
“Having worked with Brendan closely, I have found he has an exceptional knowledge of the food sector, and a great understanding of how to develop early stage technologies in this sector. Brendan has a rare quality – he has a superb knowledge of the technical side of food development, given his food science background, but is also able to marry this to a commercial understanding, given his experience in developing and marketing new products. I have found his advice to be always very practical, logical and honest. Brendan’s insight can only benefit any project he is involved with. I would recommend him highly”.
Dermot Tierney, Licensing Executive, Dublin Institute of Technology
"I worked closely with Norma during my time with Kerry Foods. She is a very professional R&D and Innovation leader who combines a strong technical knowledge with an open attitude to new approaches and innovation and a demonstrable desire to learn and improve. In addition she has a high order of people skills both leading and motivating her own teams and working with her peer group and senior colleagues. All in all Norma is a very rounded and capable leader, a delight to work with, and I would strongly recommend her”.
