Apprentice star saved by Glanbia

AN Apprentice contestant from Ireland who once faced Alan Sugar's boardroom has seen her company exit examinership after an investment from Glanbia Consumer Foods.

Jane McEvoy's McEvoy Family Foods is now a subsidiary of Glanbia Consumer Foods after a €420,000 investment, but will trade under its existing name. Jane and her husband Gary will continue to run the company.

"This has been a very difficult process for us, but we are happy to have come through the examinership and secured the future of the business," said Mrs McEvoy.

"Glanbia's investment will help us realise our goals by bringing additional expertise to the company."
