“The company has always shown itself to be a business which attains the highest standards and is trusted by its customers. The new team, which I am proud to lead, will continue that tradition of excellence and build on the strong foundations laid over the last 27 years.”
Shellfish Ireland was founded in 1987 and is one of the largest employers in West Cork town Castletownbere. It supplies to over 1,000 restaurants in Ireland and retail outlets here and internationally.
