Food Firm Caters For Export Success From New Strabane Base

Jun 06, 2006

Food processing company Galfees NI Ltd has set up a facility in Strabane, Co Tyrone as part of a £770,000 investment supported by Invest Northern Ireland.

Part of the Galfees Group based in the north west of Ireland, Galfees NI Ltd will manufacture a range of packaged sandwiches, prepared deli products, prepared vegetables, ready made cooked meals and luxury desserts for both the NI and RoI retail and food service sectors.  

“The quality of the premises at Strabane Enterprise Centre, the availability of a skilled workforce and the range of support offered by Invest NI were all factors which ultimately led to us selecting Strabane as a location to base our food processing business,” says James Gallagher, Director, Galfees NI Ltd.  

“Our main targets will be retail customers with fresh deli counters and the food service market all over the North of Ireland. The Strabane site will enable us to service these markets more efficiently and cost effectively, whilst enabling us to develop new products and explore new market opportunities.”

Ian Murphy, Invest NI’s newly appointed Managing Director of Clients and Entrepreneurship, adds: “This investment is a welcome boost to the Strabane area as it will deliver over £270,000 annually in wages and salaries to the local economy. Galfees also brings a commitment to innovation which will drive the business and ensure rapid, sustainable growth in export markets.”

Galfees NI Ltd is based in a purpose built facility at Strabane Enterprise Centre in Invest NI’s Orchard Road Industrial Estate. Galfees NI Ltd also offers outside catering for corporate functions and plans to extend the range of food which is available at its coffee shop in the industrial estate.
