Rural Businesses Making a Difference: A Collection of Business Cases Based on Rural Enterprises in Newfoundland and Labrador and the Republic of Ireland

Lay Summary 

This collection of ten business cases from Newfoundland and Labrador and the Republic of Ireland focuses on successful businesses located in smaller centres. Each business has overcome disadvantages associated with being located outside urban centres, and each has developed an approach to delivering a product or service that enables it to compete successfully.

The range of businesses include a woolen mill, an engineering consulting firm, a medical supply firm, a food processing company, an e-commerce firm, a veterinary pharmaceutical firm, a manufacturer of musical instruments, a water management company, a theatre company, and a management consulting firm. Some are actively engaged in international business, while others focus on a local market. All provide real world insights into business development.
