Kerry Group To Make Decision On Listowel Plant

Kerry Group is undertaking a cost-cutting review of its Listowel manufacturing facility, with fears that up to 50 jobs are at risk at the plant.

According to The Kerryman, Kerry Group Director of Corporate Affairs Frank Hayes said that most of the base ingredients for the products being manufactured at the Kerry facility are being imported from the UK, and as such it might make more financial sense to move production to the UK.

However, he said that the production of brands such as Dairygold and Kerrymaid would not be affected, should there be job losses.

"No decision has been taken on this, but it certainly wouldn't see as many as 50 jobs affected," he told the paper. "That number is the entire workforce in that part of the plant producing the spreads and there's no questions of having these Irish brands like Dairygold, Low-Low and Kerrymaid manufactured anywhere other than in Ireland."
