How can we help?


Retail, consumer & online

Supporting quality craftsmanship and brands to scale internationally

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. 

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.
