A Fine Gael Senator says the investment of 26m euro in the expansion of the Aurivo Dairy Ingredients plant in Ballaghaderreen is very positive news for the town.
The investment in the Ballaghaderreen plant is part of a wider 5-year Capital Investment Programme.
These developments will allow Aurivo to increase their milk production by 25% and their dairy ingredients capacity by 50%.
The planned developments are being supported by Enterprise Ireland.
Senator Maura Hopkins says the planned expansion is very positive for Ballaghaderreen and the surrounding area. She says Aurivo is already a very important employer in the town and wider region and it now has the potential to create further employment both during the construction phase and once the extended facility is up and running.
