Sweet am­bi­tion to sell into Ger­many

Irish Examiner - Supplement - - FOOD & DRINK IRELAND - Mella McAu­ley, Mella’s Fudge, West Cork

“We are ex­port­ing, a small amount, but I couldn’t hon­estly say whether Brexit and the fear of Brexit is hav­ing an im­pact yet be­cause I’m not ex­port­ing enough yet — but I haven’t changed my prices, they’re the same as two years ago when I started even though ster­ling is worth less. Now I try and quote in eu­ros to oth­ers look­ing to buy. I am go­ing to work with a UK com­pany mak­ing a line of fudge for them and it will all be through eu­ros so that’s not an is­sue. An­other UK com­pany have been on to me about dis­tribut­ing my own so there is still busi­ness there for good prod­ucts.

“I am look­ing at other mar­kets, a crowd in Ger­many have been on to me, and Swe­den and Scan­di­navia but noth­ing is hap­pen­ing yet but then again I’ve been so busy, I’ve hardly have the chance to sit down and fol­low it up be­cause I’m also devel­op­ing a line of fudge for an­other big Ir­ish re­tail com­pany.”
