Monaghan Mushrooms Transfers Production From Belmullet To New State Of The Art Mushroom Farm In Monaghan
April 28, 2010
Monaghan Mushrooms has confirmed its intention to transfer mushroom production from its Drimbawn Mushrooms farm at Belmullet, in Co. Mayo to a new state of the art farm in Tyholland, Co. Monaghan. Regrettably, this production transfer will result in the closure of the Belmullet farm.
No firm date has been fixed although it is believed that late Summer will be the likely date. The Drimbawn Mushrooms farm at Belmullet has been in operation under Monaghan Mushrooms control for approximately six years. All seventy-one persons employed at the facility will be offered employment elsewhere within the Monaghan Mushrooms organisation, most likely at their headquarters at Tyholland. Commenting on the announcement Paul Wilson, Operation Director of Monaghan Mushrooms said “The opening of a new farm in Monaghan represents a new chapter in the growth of Monaghan Mushrooms. The new farm will be the most technologically advanced and environmentally sustainable mushroom farm in the world. Although 71 employees are affected by this announcement I hope very much that they will choose to continue working for the company, contributing to our growth agenda”.
