Why not see what our members and Export Champions, Vernacare, have to say about our international trade services? 

 'Since engaging with the Chamber in 2012 the exporting process has been made much easier for us. The Chamber has supported us throughout,  including helping us with export documentation, new distributor searches, organising Meet the Expert events and cultural workshops. 

From the support GMCC has offered to Vernacare in multiple global markets, exports now comprise 38% of the company’s total business, with 21% of turnover coming from international trade.

As Christina Smith puts it: "Export is the growth engine of the company and as a result, we continue to invest resource and time into maintaining our position as market leader in some markets whilst developing our business in areas of the world which are relatively new to us.”'
