Kerry Group Kerry Group, the global food company, is to make a €100million investment in a technology and innovation centre at Millennium Park, Naas.

900 jobs will be created at the completed facility, with 400 construction jobs to be available during the development phase.

The North Kildare Chamber today stated that they are truly delighted with today’s job announcement for Naas and Kildare. 

Eilis Quinlan, Chamber President said this morning “This is the largest ever single investment in food innovation by a company in Ireland, and puts Ireland and Kildare firmly at the forefront of global food innovation.  We welcome the 400 jobs that will be created during construction, and of course the 800-900 permanent jobs that this announcement will create, the spinoff of which will have a greatly positive impact on businesses throughout the county. 

To have the Kerry Group set up a Food and Innovation Distribution centre in Naas will be great news for the whole county.  Kildare has the best of high end technological parks and we are perfectly strategically and geographically positioned to service all major motorways easily.  The Chamber looks forward to working closely with the Kerry Group”. Quinlan concluded.
