Valeo Foods has completed a significant investment programme involving a €7million upgrade of its Cabra manufacturing facility in West Dublin.
The investment sees the creation of a new state-of-the-art production line, which has resulted in the manufacturing, production and packaging of Chef sauces and Fruitfield jams and marmalades returning to Ireland.
As a result, the investment will see the creation of 40 new positions, bringing total employment to 150 over the next year. Similarly, production output from the facility will increase to an annual figure of around 85 million consumer packs.
Marking its return to Ireland, Chef has launched a new bespoke bottle design which will be rolled out across the entire Chef range including brown, ketchup, salad cream and bbq sauces.
Chief Commercial Officer, Oliver Sutherland, Valeo Foods, commented on the investment; “With the expansion and upgrading of our production facilities at Cabra we now have a best-in-class international site which meets the highest global food safety and quality standards.
"Through our continued focus on innovation and new product development, we look forward to growing our manufacturing output in Ireland and further supporting the local economy and Irish suppliers.”
