Irish food company O’Brien Fine Foods has announced details of a €14 million development at its ham processing facility in Timahoe, County Kildare. O’Brien Fine Foods is a leading producer of cooked meats under the Brady Family brand, and breakfast meats under the Rudds brand.

The planned 8,000 sq m expansion at the Timahoe facility – which is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland – is expected to more than double operational capacity, creating an additional 40 full time jobs. This will bring the total number of jobs at Timahoe from 270 to 310 over the next two years. A further 150 jobs will be created during the construction phase.

“It is our ambition to become the leading producer in the cooked meats sector,” says John O’Brien, Managing Director at O’Brien Fine Foods. “Not only will the investment in our facility significantly increase our operational capacity, but it will also improve our efficiency, expand our production capabilities to other proteins and positively impact our sustainability credentials. Most importantly, this is all underpinned by important job creation in the local area.”

Owned by the O’Brien family since 2000 and operating from two dedicated facilities in Timahoe, Co Kildare and Birr, Co Offaly, O’Brien Fine Foods currently supplies branded and own label products to all major multiples, discounters and convenience groups in Ireland.

John O’Brien continues: “We have a strong track record in the cooked meats sector, and pride ourselves on producing 100% Irish, Bord Bia-approved pork products. We work with Irish suppliers with whom we have long-standing relationships. In today’s marketplace, we recognise that provenance and quality is of the utmost importance, which, in turn, drives growth and demand for our products.”
