Northern Ireland business Clandeboye Estate, home to Clandeboye Yoghurt, has announced it will invest over £2million to expand its yoghurt business and create 13 new jobs.

 

The Bangor-based Northern Ireland business is building a new factory on the grounds of Clandeboye Estate, which will help it to increase the production of its multi-award-winning yoghurt and grow sales in international markets.

Making the announcement, John Hood, Director of Food and Drink at Invest Northern Ireland, said, “Over the last twelve years, Clandeboye Estate has built its farm-based artisan yoghurt brand into a premium offering.

“Our support over the years has helped it to grow in ROI and now GB, with major retailers such as Aldi, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Asda stocking its products.

“We are delighted to continue to support Clandeboye with this new investment, which will assist it to quadruple its production capacity and double its workforce in the Ards & North Down area.

“Last year, food and drink companies generated over £5billion for the Northern Ireland economy,” John continued.

“The sector has remained resilient throughout COVID-19 and it continues to be a major contributor to our local economy.

“It is great to see companies like Clandeboye focusing on innovation to remain competitive and continuing to expand and invest,” he added.

Bryan Boggs, General Manager of Clandeboye Estate Yoghurt, said, “As the only yoghurt manufacturer in Northern Ireland, our mission is to grow Clandeboye Yoghurt as sustainably as possible and to maintain the high quality of our natural yoghurt offering.

“Everything from grazing to production takes place within the Clandeboye Estate, with milk sourced from the Clandeboye herd and local producers – a complete ‘farm to spoon’ journey.

Support from Invest NI has been “invaluable” for the Northern Ireland business

“Over the last twelve years, Invest NI’s ongoing guidance has been invaluable to the growth of our company.

“Its support is enabling us to build a new factory and invest in specialist machinery,” he continued.

“This will give us the capacity to produce up to 80 tonnes of yoghurt per week, over four times what we normally produce.

“All of this combined will help us to increase our export sales and expand in the GB market,” Bryan adds.

This project is part-financed by the European Regional Development Fund under the Investment for Growth and Jobs Programme 2014-2020.
