115 jobs to be created by 2020 with €117m Dairygold investment

Posted by | September 19, 2014 | Employment News | No Comments

The Taoiseach, Mr Enda Kenny, attended special events today in Mallow and Mitchelstown, County Cork, to mark Dairygold’s €117 million investment in the expansion of its dairy processing facilities at both locations.

The Mallow investment will see approximately 400 people employed on the site at peak construction. Dairygold itself expects to employ an additional 115 people full-time across its milk processing activities sites by 2020 to manage the increase in milk production over the next five years. The Dairygold expansion will also see a significant number of additional jobs in farming and indirect and downstream activity created in the businesses that supply goods and services to Dairygold.

THE abolition of milk quotas next year will trigger the greatest level of jobs creation within the Irish agri-food sector for a generation. And soaring milk production, processing and exports could create up to 15,000 new jobs over the next decade with potential new exports and sales worth up to €1.3bn.

Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney has stressed that Ireland must exploit to the full the huge potential now within the dairy sector. “This is a once in a generation opportunity and it is vital that Ireland makes the most of it,” Mr Coveney said.
