Old Dairy Brewery named as SE Export Champion

Posted on: 23rd July 2021

Old Dairy Brewery based in Tenterden has proudly announced that the business has been nominated an Export Champion by the Department for International Trade (DIT) for the South East for 2021/2022.

Old Dairy Brewery was established in 2009 and started life in a converted dairy in Rolvenden. In 2015, due to the popular demand for its beers, the team moved to a new larger premises in Tenterden.

Brewed in the ‘Garden of England’, all beers are produced using Kentish hops sourced from within a three-mile radius of the brewery.

Selected by the DIT, the brewery’s role as an Export Champion will be to encourage and inspire other businesses to grow through exports. Old Dairy Brewery will be utilising its experience from entering four new markets over the last four years and sharing its insights with other businesses, particularly small companies in the food & drink sector.

Export Champions are successful, experienced exporters who volunteer their time to inspire others to grow their business internationally, including by speaking at events and raising awareness of DIT and other export support available. Through sharing their knowledge and expertise, they play an important role in increasing the export potential of SMEs and contributing to economic growth.

Old Dairy Brewery has worked closely with DIT, Kent County Council, Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce and has participated in various programmes of activity organised through the Kent International Business initiative to help Kent businesses make contacts and do business in mainland Europe. Old Dairy has recently produced some bespoke Italian promotional materials and a website for Italian customers and joined various trade missions to shows such as SIAL and Anuga and met with businesses on the other side of the Channel through the KCC-led ISE project.
