On Wednesday, 28th of March at the Liffey Trust in Dublin’s inner city, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys TD, Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Michael Creed TD and Minister for Finance and Public Expenditure and Reform Paschal Donohoe TD opened the Brexit Loan Scheme for applications, a loan fund worth a total of €300 million provided by the Departments of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Business Enterprise and Innovation, and the European Investment Bank (EIB).

The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine’s share of funding ensures that at least 40% of the fund will be available to food businesses.

The Scheme is open to eligible businesses with up to 499 employees and has the potential to benefit over 5,000 companies.
