Veronica from Crossogue Preserves was one of 60 female entrepreneurs in all who between them employ over 470 people and who worked with their mentors/lead entrepreneurs over two days at the recent ‘Going for Growth’ National Forum held in Co. Kildare.

Together, the women plan to grow their sales on export markets in particular, with more than half predicting that in five years’ time the majority of their customers will be overseas.

Founded in 1995 and still operating from the family home in Ballycahill, Thurles, Tippeary, Crossogue Preserves produce over 85 different varieties of high quality, natural handmade preserves using traditional family recipes.

“I thought that the Going for Growth National Forum was excellent and I am very happy that I attended. I met many interesting people and learnt a lot which will help me to further grow my Crossogue Preserves both on home and export markets.”
