« BackKerry Group says production transfer will not mean job losses in Listowel

Kerry Group says around 20 staff members in its Listowel plant will be redeployed within the north Kerry factory.

It follows a decision in 2014 to relocate the manufacture of UK supermarkets ‘own brand’ spreads to a base in the UK.

The transfer was earmarked for last summer but the expanded facilities in the UK were not ready.

It is now to take place in the coming months.

The manufacture of Kerry brands for the Irish market will continue in Listowel.
