Foster Welcomes Dale Farm’s Decision to Acquire Fivemiletown Brand

May 16, 2014
Enterprise Trade and Investment Minister Arlene Foster has welcomed today’s announcement that Dale Farm has acquired the Fivemiletown soft cheese brands from Glanbia Ingredients Ireland Limited.
 
Arlene Foster said: “Today’s confirmation that Dale Farm is to continue to manufacture award winning soft cheeses in Fivemiletown is positive news for Clogher Valley, as it will secure 20 jobs at the creamery.
 
“I am of course acutely aware that, under these new arrangements, there will still be redundancies when cheddar cheese production ceases in July and my thoughts are with those affected and their families.
 
“Together with my officials in Invest Northern Ireland, I have been working to secure the best possible outcome for everyone involved over the past few months. This will continue to be the case and I hope that by further building the internationally recognised Fivemiletown brand, Dale Farm will be able to increase employment opportunities at the creamery in the future.”
