Beef and lamb processor Dunbia is investing £27 million (€37 million) in its headquarters in Dungannon, Northern Ireland over the next three years.
Dunbia Northern Ireland currently employs nearly 1,000 people in the procurement, slaughter and de-boning of cattle and sheep, and wholesale distribution of beef and lamb.
A further 209 jobs are set to be created by the investment, which will create an ‘intelligent’ boning hall and upgrade the company’s beef mince and diced burger lines, increasing productivity and supporting growth in sales outside of Northern Ireland.
Jim Dobson, Managing Director of Dunbia Group explained, “Innovation has been at the heart of our success and this investment in new production technology will create a centre of excellence for beef de-boning in Ireland.”
“It will help us to maintain our position as a leading meat processor in the UK and Ireland and to deliver on our growth strategy over the next three to five years,” he added.
