An Armagh company has launched its own brand of desserts and opened up new markets in Dubai.

Davison Canners unveiled Simply Puddings, its line of 'hot-eat' desserts and puddings, which were made possible following a £1.4m investment it received last year, including a £150,000 cash injection from Invest NI.

Managing director Alan Davison said: "We are continually reviewing our business model and looking for ways to expand into new areas.

"With Invest NI's support we have diversified our business with a new product range, secured new orders in Great Britain and Dubai and are now launching our own branded range of desserts - Simply Puddings.

"As a result of these investments in the business we have increased the number of employees from 14 to 90 in just two years and we hope to grow this further in the coming year."

Invest NI offered £99,800 in 2018, and £47,000 in March.
