Former Authentic Food Company premises up for sale

The former Authentic Foods Facility at the Finnabair Industrial Estate in Dundalk has been placed up for sale for an undisclosed sum.

The sale of the 172,526sq ft building, which is set on 13.32 acres, is being handled by Dublin-based agents JLL.

The property comprises of a purpose built food production facility, laid out as production halls, chilled and frozen storage areas, office accommodation, staff canteen and ancillary plant rooms.

After months of speculation regarding the company’s future, The Authentic Food Company closed its doors last October citing financial difficulties with 169 staff losing their jobs.

The factory off the Inner Relief Road was opened in 1993 and was one of the biggest employers in the town with 155 employed there when The Authentic Food Company took over the running of the plant from Heinz in February 2015.
