Minister Coveney welcomes announcement by Alltech of 100 new jobs in Ireland

The Minister of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Simon Coveney TD today welcomed the announcement by Alltech of 100 highly skilled jobs at its European Headquarters in Co. Meath.

The Minister referred to the recent opening of the greatly expanded Alltech European Bioscience Centre in Dunboyne and said that “Alltech is to be congratulated on the impressive expanded facilities which is the centre for their European operations and which will play a key role in  research, marketing, regulatory and quality control.” He added that “the 100 new jobs is a great boost for employment opportunities and Alltech’s decision to expand here is no doubt influenced by the availability of highly qualified young graduates in Ireland. The new posts being created are very much in line with the development of the smart agri-food economy as foreseen under Food Harvest 2020”.
