"I rely on Powerscourt to be my eyes and ears in the City. They have an excellent understanding of how the media and the City interact." Patrick Coveney, CEO, Greencore Group

Powerscourt has provided Greencore with financial and corporate communications since 2006.  We have helped the company to communicate and simplify its story as it has completed its evolution from state-owned Irish sugar business to the UK’s biggest convenience food manufacturer with a rapidly growing presence in the US. In addition to substantially raising Greencore's profile among the media and analyst communities, we have helped the company's management team through a number of complex corporate events throughout that period, including M&A, capital raising and crisis communications.

Highlights of our work with Greencore have included its £113m acquisition of Uniq plc and the successful switch in the company’s primary listing from Dublin to London, which entailed a comprehensive programme of analyst and investor engagement and resulted in a significant re-rating of the stock.
