Plans to be submitted for bacon factory at the Agivey

1 Mins read

A proposal of application will be submitted within the next few days to Causeway Coast and Glens planners to redevelop the old Agivey bacon factory, which could create up to 400 jobs. 

If successful, the £75m redevelopment would be one of the biggest pig processing plants in Northern Ireland.

The application will be submitted by Ballymoney architect Johann Muldoon MBE on behalf of ‘Bann Side Foods at the Agivey’.   

Commenting on the application UUP’s Darryl Wilson said

“Developers (Bannside foods) have submitted a planning proposal which details the redevelopment of the former Lovell and Christmas (Agivey) food processing plant at Bann Road, Ballymoney to incorporate a new automated, first of its kind food processing plant with associated ancillary accommodation and site works.

“If successful this would see £75 million of private investment in the site and the creation of circa 350-400 directed jobs, plus over 2000 indirect and the securing of 2000 existing jobs.

“This is most certainly welcome news which could bring much needed job creation and investment to the area if the application is successful.”
