Listen in, to hear our top tips for international growth & and how we came to export our life-changing technology to over 50 countries in only a few years after launching our first product.

Minister of State for Trade and Export Promotion Baroness Fairhead said:
Sure Chill’s success in Africa and Asia highlights how exporting can improve the lives of those in developing countries thousands of miles away. It’s stories like this that inspire other UK businesses to explore overseas markets, and I’m pleased my department has been able to help Sure Chill deliver its life-saving refrigerators internationally.
As demand for British goods worldwide continues to grow, we stand ready to support businesses in Wales and across the UK looking to explore overseas markets. I would encourage likeminded businesses to listen to the ‘Local to Global’ podcast and hear first-hand the stories of businesses on their export experience.
Secretary of State for Wales Alun Cairns said:
Innovative businesses like Sure Chill, who joined my recent trip to Africa with the Prime Minister, are contributing to a stronger Welsh economy, and I am delighted to see their success in the global marketplace. It’s encouraging for other Welsh companies to hear from those who have expanded their business internationally.
There has never been a better time for Welsh companies to export to new markets. The UK Government is supporting Welsh businesses as they begin their export journey, whether that’s with financial support, attending overseas trade shows or connecting them with international buyers.
Nigel Saunders, Chief Executive Officer at Sure Chill, said:
We’re proud to be featured in the ‘Local to Global’ podcast. It’s great to share our experience with other businesses knowing that it might give them the confidence to begin exporting.
Exporting has always been part of our business plan because the nature of our product means that the people who would benefit the most are in developing economies.
The exporting process can be complex because different countries have specific requirements. The Department for International Trade has provided us with insight into new markets and networking opportunities. Now we’re excited to take our ground-breaking technology to all corners of the globe and improve lives far and wide.
