Dunne MP for Ludlow is set to visit a local food firm’s brand new,
state-of-the-art facility next month to demonstrate international
growth opportunities for rural businesses.

Dunne will attend the Ludlow Nut Company on Friday 27
April, along with the International Trade’s 40ft Export Hub Truck,
members of the Shropshire International Trade team and neighbouring
firms to demonstrate how international export can provide the steps
for rural business development, the creation of new jobs, and
encourage local economic growth.

MP and Shropshire Department for International Trade has organised
for the Export Hub Truck, part of the Government’s national Export
is GREAT campaign, to attend the event from 10am until 1:30pm at
Ludlow Nut Company, Foldgate Lane, Ludlow, SY8 1LS.

speakers include Philip Dunne MP, who will provide an overview of the
support available to rural businesses across Ludlow, Bridgnorth and
Church Stretton and beyond to help them unlock markets overseas, and
how companies such as Ludlow Nut Company, Igloo Vision, Grainger &
Worrall and FL Hitchman have benefited as a result.

Shropshire International Trade Team explained: “We’re dedicated
to helping businesses of all shapes and sizes prosper
internationally, and in particular supporting rural businesses across
Ludlow, Church Stretton and Bridgnorth, which can be often
overlooked, but the growth of whom hugely benefits the local economy
and communities.

Nut Company is a shining example of how exporting can result in
solid, sustainable growth, and we’d encourage any surrounding
businesses to come along, hear Philip Dunne MP and see the Exporting
is GREAT campaign truck in the county.”

Graham, Managing Director
the Ludlow Nut Company, explained: “As our name suggests, we’re
extremely proud of our heritage in Ludlow and it was only natural for
us to develop a new site just across the road to cater for increased
demand both here in the UK and internationally. The support that we
received from the Department for International Trade has been
incredibly valuable to our business’s future and in the creation of
more local job opportunities, and we are eager to encourage more
rural Shropshire businesses to explore the possibilities.”
