Catherine O'Connell, Managing Director of bBold, said: "We want to build on the success that our bBold self-tan product has achieved in the Irish Pharmacy market. With Invest NI’s assistance we are progressing a recruitment drive and implementing a sales and marketing strategy that will help accelerate the growth of the business.

"Our ambition is to secure full listings throughout the UK so we need to recruit additional sales, marketing and distribution staff to cope with this anticipated demand.
