Major jobs announcement expected at Largo Foods

It's expected that over 30 jobs will be confirmed today at Largo Foods on the Gweedore Industrial Estate.

Over €2 million euro is being invested in a new manufacturing line at the plant, which employs over 180 people. However, many of those are on part time contracts, and hope that these latest development will see their houtrs increase.

Last year, almost 100 people were let go, but management at the plant say this new line should give Largo in Gweedore a new lease of life.

Local Cllr and Udaras Board member David Alcorn is confident that today's announcement will signal a turning of the tide for the company..........
