Founder of Anu Dairy Kevin Kennedy spoke to independent.ie following the announcement of the pitching result. "To be fair the other teams were fantastic and they were far ahead of us in terms of domestic sales but our company is based on export. So we've had to invest time into seeing how the export works and to see if we can get it to scale."
Kevin Kennedy, Founder Anu Dairy
