Heavenly Tasty Organics

Envisioned with the premise of providing convenience without guilt, Fintona mother-of-two Shauna McCarney founded organic baby food company Heavenly Tasty Organics from her kitchen in June 2009.

With the key objective of turning her concept into a viable business, the businesswoman spent two years on research and development, creating a range of eight 100 percent organic products, which, with backing of Invest NI and DARD, are produced from the company’s new base in the Food Business Incubation Centre in Loughrey College.

Describing her company as totally unique and a first of its kind in the province, Heavenly Tasty Organics appeals to a large local market area and are now stocked by Supervalu stores across Northern Ireland.

The company now employs a total of four people and is in the process of developing the next stage of baby products, with plans to sell in the South of Ireland.

Floral Temptations

Set up in March 2010 on Omagh’s Old Mountfield Road, Floral Temptations’ specialises in fresh flowers and offers a wide range of products for both weddings and sympathy occasions. Opening in a crowded local market amidst a tight economic climate, proprietor Judith Kempston’s objectives for her new business have included providing high quality goods and an excellent service for a wide customer base within a 25 mile radius.

Acknowledging that her products may be considered luxury items, the florist has successfully focused on wedding and funeral orders, while still catering for individual needs and disposable incomes with fresh flowers.

The business has become firmly established in the locale, with strong future wedding bookings and partnerships with local undertakers, schools and hairdressers.

With promising turnover figures, Floral Temptations continues to show signs of growth, with new online markets allowing the business to send and receive orders world-wide.plans to sell in the south of Ireland.


Based on Omagh’s Brookmount Road, graphic design, and print business IDesign has grown quickly since it, opened in July 2009. Proprietor Terry McClean notes his original objectives were to provide a unique graphic design service coupled with a printing service.

However the introduction of two new staff members have boosted sales and services, including website design, to a range of clients from commercial, governmental and private sectors. A quality glossy bi-monthly ‘Eye on Tyrone’ publication, distributed in Omagh, has added a new facet to the business, boosting revenue while promoting IDesign’s own graphic service. IDesign promotes a higher standard of product and service than competitors all under one roof, supplying branding, marketing, graphic design, print, web design and social media integration. Future plans in place include a new flyer/distribution service and new e-commerce service, which the business states will further boost revenue.
