    Snack foods maker, Largo Foods, is to invest €2.6m in the expansion of its Co Donegal facility, Ireland.

    The announcement comes as the company’s new rice and tortilla based snack food manufacturing line was officially launched by the Minister of State at the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Dinny McGinley, at its plant in Gweedore.

    The new snack-food line, which was specially constructed and shipped in from Casa Herrera in California, is now fully operational and supplying the Irish and UK markets.

    The investment is expected to see 35 new jobs created at the facility. Largo Foods currently employs over 190 people on a full time and part-time basis.

    Minister McGinley said: “This new investment is on top of an earlier €2.2m investment made in the business in 2010.
