Green Isle Foods, the leading Irish frozen foods company, is to invest €30 million across its operations in Ireland which will result in an additional 115 jobs over the next five years. As a result of the investment, which is intended to position Green Isle Foods for future growth in Ireland and overseas, an additional 50 jobs will be created at the company’s pizza production facility in Longford and an additional 65 jobs in its pastry production plant in Portumna.

The investment also secures the jobs of the 700 people currently employed by Green Isle. The investment programme is being supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland.

Green Isle Foods is part of the UK-based 2 Sisters Food Group, which has a total turnover of £3 billion with approximately 24,000 employees worldwide. The company operates in some of the most dynamic and fast moving categories of the food industry and represents household brand names such as Green Isle, Donegal Catch and Goodfella’s.

Eddie Power, managing director of Green Isle Foods, says: “Green Isle Foods is a company of ambition operating in what are exceptionally competitive markets. It is critical that we have well invested facilities to ensure that we compete and win on both national and international stages. This investment programme increases our capacity and extends our product offering and secures access to a wider range of international markets.”
