Danone Nutricia Early Life Nutrition has opened its new extended facility in Wexford today. The recently completed expansion is the final phase of a €180 million investment programme that has taken place at the Company’s Irish operations in Macroom and Wexford over the past four years.
Employment at the company will have increased from 180 to over 400 by the end of this year, with 50 as part of the new facility investment.
Donal Courtney, Managing Director, Danone Nutricia Early Life Nutrition Ireland said: “We have a significant track record of growth and investment in Ireland over the past four years. This reflects both a growing demand for our products in the European and Asian markets as well as the high regard in which the Irish operations are held amongst the Danone Groupe.”
He said that locating the state-of-art new generation packaging line in Wexford reinforces the strategic nature of the Irish based operations. Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton officially opened the facility this morning, saying that new jobs will have a major knock-on impact on the local economy in particular in the dairy industry.
