Ballymaguire Foods aims to create 200 jobs as it plans a €25m facility expansion

Food companies Ballymaguire Foods and County Crest will expand their food production facilities in Lusk, Co. Dublin with a €25 million investment.

The expansion plans envisage the companies creating 200 jobs over the next five years, and construction is currently underway. The companies expect the expansion to be operational next summer.

Founded in 2008, Ballymaguire Foods is a sister company to Country Crest, which was founded in 1993 by brothers Michael and Gabriel Hoey. It is the largest ready meal producer on the island of Ireland.

“We are excited to make this investment in our business as we continue to grow and expand our reach from our base in Lusk. Our production capacity will be greatly increased and used primarily to support the opportunities we see both in this country and in mainland Europe,” said Ed Spelman, co-owner and managing director of Ballymaguire Foods.

He added that the company’s Irish suppliers will also benefit from the company’s planned growth, as many of the ready meal ingredients are sourced directly from Ireland.

“This is a vote of confidence in the Irish food industry, an industry that continues to thrive despite the difficult economic conditions we are all experiencing at the moment,” added Country Crest Managing Director Michael Hoey.

Recruitment for the new positions is expected to begin immediately, with management, research and development, and quality control positions available. The companies will also hire technicians, engineers and chefs as part of the planned business growth. Ballymaguire Foods aims to create 200 jobs as it plans a €25m facility expansion
