Aughnacloy-based Montgomery Food Consulting has officially opened its new premises following a £250,000 investment.
The premises was built as a result of funding from the NI Small Business Loan Fund and Invest NI. Facilities will include training space, a food innovation kitchen and new workspaces.
Montgomery Food Consulting is a leading provider of consultancy for food safety, quality management, training and interim technical services across the island of Ireland.
Enterprise, trade and investment minister Arlene Foster, speaking at the opening, said: “Since its humble beginnings four years ago, Montgomery Food Consulting has placed a high priority on continued investment and innovation and I am pleased that it has continued to work with Invest Northern Ireland in developing the business.
“The company is a valuable employer in South Tyrone and its investment will not only enhance Montgomery Food Consulting’s reputation across Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland, but also reinforce the capabilities of Northern Ireland’s world class food sector.”
The company’s current roster of clients includes Annaghmore Mushrooms, Island Salads, Annie’s Traditional Foods, McKees Maghera, Morelli Ice-cream and the Hilton Meat Group. Recently, Montgomery Food Consulting launched the Butchery Excellence Scheme – a support body for butchers, offering expertise and services to ensure members adhere to legislation, encourage innovation and support of local business.
