Steve’s Cakes in Antrim, which produces homemade cakes and traybakes, is to supply one of Ireland’s leading foodservice organisations, Pallas Foods.

The deal came about through an initiative called Invest NI, part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, which holds ’Meet the Buyer’ events. These events allow smaller companies the oppor-tunity to meet with the buyers for major foodservice and retail businesses on a one-to-one basis.
