Kepak is pleased to have secured a significant investment under the Government’s Capital Investment Scheme for the Processing and Marketing of Agricultural Products.
The €10m in funding, administered by Enterprise Ireland, will support Kepak’s development and diversification strategy following Brexit across four key sites.
The factories that have been selected as beneficiaries are Kepak Cork, Cavan (McCarren Meats), Ballybay and Kilbeggan.
“This major investment in the Kepak business will help a number of our key sites to develop and diversify following Brexit, supporting both our ambitious market access and sustainability strategy,” commented Kepak CEO Simon Walker.
“More broadly, I welcome the investment in our sector, which will also undoubtedly benefit the farming community and rural Ireland. This is a landmark investment which will have a significantly positive impact on the Kepak business and wider industry,” Mr Walker said.
