IRELAND: Largo Foods pledges Donegal facility investment

Irish snack foods maker Largo Foods is to invest EUR2.6m (US$3.7m) in its Donegal manufacturing facility.

Irish snack foods maker Largo Foods is to invest EUR2.6m (US$3.7m) in its Donegal manufacturing facility.

The Tayto and Hunky Dory crisps maker said today (21 June) that the investment follows the recent installation of a rice and tortilla-based snack food line at the plant.

The latest investment is expected to create around 35 jobs at the facility, which employs around 190 staff on a full-time basis.

A spokesperson for Largo Foods told just-food that the investment will be used to make “innovative better-for-you snacks both for the Irish and export markets”.

“Approximately 70% of what Largo Foods makes in Donegal is exported, principally to the UK,” said Largo Foods CEO Ray Coyle. “Our strategy is to continue to invest in R&D and high-value products to allow us to increase efficiencies, sustain and grow the business in Gaoth Dobhair.”
