New R&D facility is part of major expansion into new markets and expands ability to work on joint technology projects with Irish and international researchers in Ireland.
An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, TD, officially opened AllinAll Ingredient’s new state of the art manufacturing and Research and Development facility in Rosemount, Dublin. The company, which has been in the food industry for over 20 years, develops and manufactures ingredients, sauces and blends for the processed food market. Its R&D lead team have developed over 500 new products so far this year and last year it developed over 900.
Previously based in Parkwest, Dublin, AllinAll Ingredient’s new facility at Rosemount includes a Pilot Plant which provides the infrastructure and scientific equipment which food scientists use to trial, develop and demonstrate new products. The new facility will support the company’s growth ambitions as it looks to further grow its sales in Eastern Europe and the Middle East as well as seek new export markets by linking up with new Distributors.
The growth trajectory which AllinAll Ingredients has been on has been substantial, doubling its employee numbers over the last four years to forty and hoping to hire a further twenty people over the next four years.
Speaking at the event, An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, TD, said:
“It is very encouraging to see cutting edge food research and innovation being developed in Dublin West. AllinAll Ingredients has been at the forefront of innovation in the food sector and the investment in this new state of the art facility should help the company to expand into more new markets in the years ahead.
Daniel Hickey, Chief Executive Officer at AllinAll Ingredients and former ISME chairperson said:
“As people’s tastes and food needs change, we need to change with them. Our new R&D facility and Pilot Plant are an important part of the new operation as it allows us trial and demonstrate new ideas and solutions for customers. We will over the coming months not only be trialling and developing new products for our customers, but we will also welcome food scientists from at home and abroad who will be coming to jointly work with us and use our facilities.”
