FRUIT im­porter Fyffes is plan­ning to ex­pand its Ir­ish pro­duc­tion and dis­tri­bu­tion ca­pa­bil­i­ties by build­ing new fa­cil­i­ties in north Dublin.

Its par­ent com­pany — Mot­combe Ltd — has ap­plied to Fin­gal County Coun­cil for plan­ning per­mis­sion to build an al­most 10,000 square me­tre (around 100,000 square feet) fa­cil­ity at the M1 Busi­ness Park at Court­lough, close to Bal­brig­gan.

The ware­house de­vel­op­ment would also in­clude an of­fice build­ing. A spokesman for the com­pany said that the plans were part of rou­tine busi­ness de­vel­op­ment for the com­pany and would not im­pact on other Fyffes fa­cil­i­ties.

Fyffes for­mer sis­ter com­pany, To­tal Pro­duce, al­ready has a large food-ser­vice oper­a­tion at the busi­ness park.

Fyffes was ac­quired from the Mccann fam­ily by Ja­panese com­pany Su­mit­omo in 2017 in a €751m deal.
