How can we help?


Materials, Print and Packaging

Driving the sustainable Irish Materials, Print and Packaging sectors.

Adapting to changing customer behaviours and purchasing patterns is important for Irish entrepreneurs in remaining agile and resilient, and Enterprise Ireland is here to support Irish businesses with exporting ambitions on that journey. Our retail, consumer and online team supports Irish-owned companies in the apparel and textiles, jewellery, home and giftware, and health and beauty industries. 

The Irish branded Consumer products are known for quality and craftsmanship, and are also renowned for innovation and sustainability, both increasingly important factors for international buyers. Consumer brands need to demonstrate how sustainable they are – right across the business from supply chain and ingredients, to packaging and distribution and have the digital systems  in place to support growth.  Enterprise Ireland is keenly focused on supporting Irish businesses in this category on their decarbonisation  and digitalisation journey’s to deliver export led job creation.
Enterprise Ireland’s team works closely and collaboratively with Irish consumer-product companies to establish and implement their strategic growth plans and capitalise on growth opportunities internationally.
