Dungannon-based Linden Foods is expanding operations in a 5m sterling (€5.9m) investment.
The company, which is a subsidiary of Fane Valley Co-operative Society, sources and produces beef and lamb.
The North’s business support agency Invest Northern Ireland has offered a grant of 520,000 under its Jobs Fund to assist the company’s plans.
“This investment is very welcome news for the food industry which is a key contributor to Northern Ireland’s economy”
Arlene Foster (Northern Ireland Minister for Enterprise)
A total of 179 new posts, including managerial and production roles, have been created.
The expansion of the workforce comes two years after the company built a new facility adjacent to its main processing site at Granville.
”This investment is an important part of our long term development strategy and underlines our commitment to the Dungannon area”
