One of Northern Ireland’s largest agri-food businesses is investing £18m in a state-of-the-art animal feeds plant at Doogary near Omagh.
The Fane Valley Group, which acquired the long established Scotts Feeds business in 2000, is relocating the company from its current town centre location to a new state of the art mill on the Doogary West Industrial Estate on the outskirts of Omagh.
The Ulster Bank-backed project will create one of the most advanced plants of its kind in Europe, delivering significant efficiencies in terms of energy demand and environmental impact.
The new mill, which will be completed in April and operational by the summer, will complement the group’s other production facility in Newry which serves the south and east of Northern Ireland to give a full coverage of the northern half of the island, including Donegall and the border counties of Cavan, Monaghan and Louth.
