Looking back, over the past three years Celtic Sea Minerals has evolved and flourished. Around three years ago 85% of the firm’s sales were for dairy feed, however the firm knew that it was essential for the company to expand product application into swine and poultry. As a result, over the last year the company has launched a specific product designed for swine and poultry. Moving forward, Celtic Sea Minerals foresees that all these applications could exceed the dairy application sales. As such, the firm will then seek to drive excellence in this area over the years ahead and this will continue to provide its clients with the solutions they need.
