An Bord Pleanála has approved dairy processor giant Glanbia Ireland's plans to construct a new €140 million manufacturing facility in Belview, Co Kilkenny.
A spokesperson for Glanbia said:
Glanbia Ireland welcomes the decision by An Bord Pleanála to grant planning permission for a new continental cheese manufacturing facility at Belview, Co. Kilkenny.
“This strategic partnership between Glanbia Ireland and leading Dutch dairy producer Royal A-ware will create a new route to market for the milk supplied by Glanbia Ireland’s network of 4,500 family farms and diversify its portfolio of consumer dairy products and ingredients as part of a Brexit mitigation strategy.”
The proposed new facility will be located at a greenfield site near to Glanbia Ireland’s infant-nutrition plant at Belview, Co. Kilkenny and will produce continental cheeses in various formats.
Once fully commissioned, the new facility will have a production capacity of 450 million litres of milk per annum. Approximately 80 full time jobs will be created at the facility.
