HSE Contract Won

A Co Down company has won a £1m contract to supply poultry, pork and bacon products to the Health Service Executive in Dublin over the next three years.

Crossgar Foodservice secured the lucrative contract with support from Invest Northern Ireland after taking part in its pilot programme on public procurement.

The local firm, which employs over 250 people, took part in the Invest NI programme to strengthen its ability to compete for public procurement contracts in the Republic.

The programme included expert guidance on a one-to-one basis on how to develop a winning tender.

In addition, Crossgar Foodservice also used Invest NI's unique contract alert service that provided early tip-offs to companies as soon as tenders were posted by public procurement agencies in the Republic and Great Britain.
