WATCH: Glanbia Ireland Wexford Cheese Plant Re-Opening
On 8 March 2018, Minister for Agriculture, Food & the Marine Michael Creed TD, along with Glanbia Group Chairman Henry Corbally, officially re-opened Glanbia Ireland’s Wexford cheese plant following a major capital investment programme.
The €35m investment in the facility, just outside Wexford town, was supported by the Government of Ireland through Enterprise Ireland, and has doubled peak capacity at the plant.
Award winning cheese from Glanbia Ireland’s Wexford facility is supplied to a number of global food companies and is also widely available in the ‘Wexford’ branded cheese range which can be bought here in Ireland and in a number of overseas markets. As well as increasing Glanbia Ireland’s cheese processing capacity, the Wexford investment will deliver an additional whey stream for the sports nutrition sector, which is one of Glanbia’s key market sectors.
Speaking at the event Minister Creed said: “I’m delighted to be here to mark the official reopening of Glanbia Ireland’s Wexford Cheese Plant. This investment supported by Enterprise Ireland is another example of the potential of the Irish agri-food sector to create and sustain jobs across the country.”
