FISH food specialist New Era is hoping to boost exports with the help of Don Valley Labour MP Caroline Flint.

Despite its international successes, the company occasionally faces difficulties with complex export health certification.

Managing director Peter Kersh said: “There are a number of inconsistencies and anomalies in export health documentation which often impede our ability to sell to certain countries and a political influence can help to level the playing field.”

After visiting New Era with Thorne councillor, Eddie Dobbs, the Don Valley MP has arranged a meeting between senior officials at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and the firm to discuss how to make the export certification more straightforward.

Caroline Flint said: “I will be doing everything I can to promote exports from firms like New Era, supporting jobs here in Doncaster.”
