Ireland is an open-market economy, meaning businesses operating in this country must be able to compete on the global stage. Rising trade tensions, geopolitical fallouts and currency fluctuations are challenges out of the control of all businesses, but ones that can have a massive impact on the bottom line.

Faced with this reality, Irish businesses have to be lean and efficient to compete successfully in global markets. This is even more so the case for Irish agribusinesses, with the majority of food produced in this country destined for international markets.
