Chief executive Liam McCaffrey said: "We see Brexit as presenting challenges, which we will continue to assess as a clearer picture emerges from trade negotiations.

"Whatever the outcome our focus is on those factors which fall within our control and ensuring an efficient supply chain to the UK mainland, which accounts for 50% of our sales."

Mr Quinn left his position as a consultant at the firm a year ago.
