‘Your Waterford’ was launched recently by the Local Enterprise Office Waterford as part of its latest programme for assisting businesses in Waterford.

The platform showcases some of the best quality products and services designed or produced in Waterford.

Several local businesses are amongst those showcased on the ‘Your Waterford’ website such as The Lismore Food Company, a luxury food, drinks, and hamper company, and Knockanore Cheese, award-winning cheese which the Lonergan family has been making on their family farm in Knockanore since 1987.

Richie Walsh, Head of Enterprise with Local Enterprise Office Waterford explained the importance of this platform, stating: “The team at the Local Enterprise Office endeavours to work on the ground with local business. That’s why we know for those in the business to business community, finding local suppliers can be difficult.

“Our local companies produce some of the highest quality, creative and innovative products available in the country, but not everyone is aware of what is going on in our local community,” he said.

‘Your Waterford’ gives shoppers the opportunity to explore a range of diverse and unique products, which they can buy online directly through the specific companies’ websites.
