New Jobs Announced At Bite Group In Enniskillen

Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster today announced that Bite Group in Enniskillen has won new export business that will lead to 23 new jobs in Fermanagh.

The new business, worth around £3million, will see the company increase production and distribution of its premium quality convenience foods throughout the Republic of Ireland and also in Northern Ireland. The new jobs will be at supervisory and management levels.

Arlene Foster announced the contract during a visit to Bite Group’s state-of-the-art production operation near Enniskillen.

The Minister said: "The new business secured by Bite Group is a great endorsement of its professionalism, capability and commitment to quality in products and services to its rapidly developing portfolio of customers. It consolidates their standing as a market leader in the preparation and production of premium quality convenience food.

"The company, which recruits locally, currently contributes around £1.5million in salaries and wages annually to the economy in Fermanagh. Bite Group’s success will also benefit local suppliers that provide the company with ingredients.

"Over recent years the company has invested extensively in its processing, marketing and distribution operations. These new contracts are a powerful recognition that Bite Group can now offer a total food solution to both existing and potential clients. This is based on their ability to create, package and distribute premium food whenever and wherever required."
