Founded by Denis Good in 1988 and celebrating its 35th year in business in 2023, the company currently operates out of two processing facilities in Carrigaline and has four other retail locations across the county in Douglas, Kinsale, Carrigaline and Ballincollig.
The new processing development will be strategically located next to Cork Container Terminal to facilitate immediate export, as well as allowing for quick access to the M28 and Ireland’s motorway network. The construction project will deliver additional capacity for the company, increasing its current operating floor space three-fold.
The factory’s build will be underpinned by a specific focus on achieving excellence across a range of energy efficiency measures, while continuing to deliver on sustainability requirements as a Bord Bia Origin Green and Fishery Improvements Project member. It will include a dedicated Research & Development (R&D) area, with the very latest cutting-edge technology installed as part of the upgrade. The additional space will also permit the acquisition of larger-scale and more effective production machinery.
“This investment is the result of key strategic decisions we made to ensure we are leading the way in terms of research, development, and creating a sustainable way forward for our business within the industry,” Donagh added. “We are very much looking forward to the busy times ahead both for the Good Fish family and the local Shanbally area through the increase of direct and indirect employment, and we’ll continue to share updates as the project continues over the coming months.”
