Northern Ireland meat processor Linden Foods is to invest £5 million in its factory site at Dungannon, resulting in the creation of 179 jobs. Linden Foods is a market leader within the Northern Ireland fresh meat processing industry, sourcing and processing top quality beef and lamb. Invest Northern Ireland has offered assistance of £520,000 under its Jobs Fund to support the company’s plans for growth within the food retailing sector.

Linden Foods, which is a subsidiary of Fane Valley Co-operative Society, services a range of retail multiples, convenience food manufacturers and the wider meat packing industry in the UK and Europe and is actively recruiting for the Dungannon site.

Trevor Lockhart, chairman of Linden Foods, says: “This investment is an important part of our long term development strategy and underlines our commitment to the Dungannon area. The support from Invest NI through its Jobs Fund will allow us to create the workforce we need to meet the demand for our range of new and innovative products among export customers and enable us to cement our leading position within the meat processing industry.”

Two years ago Linden Foods opened a new purpose-built facility adjacent to the company’s main processing site at Granville. Along with new preparation, production and dispatch areas, the 5,740 sq m premises included a dedicated innovation centre and development kitchen enabling the business to continually innovate and create products that are ahead of current trends in the food retailing sector.
