The cider producer is investing in new equipment such as a ‘tunnel pasteuriser’ to increase efficiency and assist a major international marketing drive.
The company, based at the heart of Northern Ireland’s orchard county and home to Armagh Bramley apples, which now have EU PGI status, has secured support from the Growth Loan Fund, which provides mezzanine finance to develop business particularly exports.
“To allow us to cope with the growing demand for our product range, we required investment from the Growth Loan Fund, which would enable us to purchase new machinery and therefore increase our product yield and expand the business into new export markets,” said Armagh Cider’s Helen Troughton. “This means we can confidently offer consumers authentic and natural apple products underpinned with genuine provenance and heritage that are being demanded increasingly in Northern Ireland and in export markets.”
