Local MPs Rosie Winterton and Caroline Flint joined Doncaster businesses to discuss how to export abroad.

The Doncaster Central and Don Valley members took part in a Q&A session, sharing ideas about how to make the move to selling in other countries.

Caroline said: “Our advice is don’t sit back and be comfortable just because you have established customers here in the UK - to grow you have to sell abroad.

“We have met firms like Kozikidz, which started in one office in Tickhill but sells to 28 countries, and New Era Aquaculture from Thorne, which now exports to 32 countries and is growing by the day.

“I want businesses to be inspired by their example and know there is help available to make the leap across the water.”
