Irish drinks group C&C (GCC.I) is in advanced talks with operators in mainland Europe to manufacture their products at its British plant after Britain leaves the European Union, its chief executive told Reuters on Thursday. With manufacturing operations in the EU and Britain through plants in Ireland and Scotland, the maker of brands including Magners, Bulmers and Tennents has consistently said it is well positioned regardless of the way in which Britain leaves the bloc next year. ... The discussions are reasonably meaningful," Glancey told Reuters after C&C reported a 16 percent rise in first-half operating profit.
