Barrnon has been selected by CommonwealthFirst for its ‘Export Champion’ programme. Only 100 leading UK SMEs will be chosen over a three year period by the organisation which has been set up to encourage trade and investment across the Commonwealth market.

Barrnon is one of 26 companies selected in the second cohort of the programme.

The businesses have been selected from all over the UK based on their ‘depth of innovation and quality’ and will be given intensive training, mentoring, trade missions and business development support, to help them win new business in the fast growing Commonwealth markets.

Lord Marland, Chairman of the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council, said “This programme is a wonderful way of demonstrating both the ingenuity of British businesses and the huge opportunities in Commonwealth markets. We hope these companies will serve as ambassadors for other UK businesses looking to trade internationally.”
