Niall Kelleher, Rathmore businessman and local election candidate has warmly welcomed the €3.7 million investment announced for the Cadbury facility in Rathmore. The announcement from the parent company (Mondelez International), was greeted with great joy in Rathmore and the wider area.
“The news has been greeted with delight in my home community of Rathmore. I’ve been speaking to some of the 86 employees since the investment was announced and this is a great boost to them and their colleagues. The Cadbury facility has been part of our community in Rathmore almost 66 years and it an integral part of the infrastructure in our town” said Niall Kelleher.
“We understand that the investment will see significant development, with the installation of a new milk evaporator and other new facilities. The company has informed us that they intend to commence work in May of this year, subject to the necessary planning permission being received” said Niall Kelleher.
“In addition to the great employment that Cadbury provide in Rathmore, there is a huge wider benefit to the community. Approximately 80 million litres of fresh milk is sourced annually from the local community, for use in the facility” said Niall Kelleher.
“I congratulate the staff, the management and the owners and I wish them well with the next wave of their investment” concluded Niall Kelleher.
