Kilkeel Seafoods has opened a new state of the art scampi processing site in Kilkeel, Northern Ireland.

Following a £1.3m investment, the new addition to the harbour based seafood business consolidates the two previous sites at Kilkeel South and Kilkeel North. The new site is dedicated to the shelling and processing of langoustine caught in the Irish Sea, to be sold across the UK and Ireland as breaded scampi.

In excess of 20 new permanent jobs have so far been created in Kilkeel with more to come as the new facility becomes fully operational. 

Daniel Whittle, managing director of parent company Whitby Seafoods said, "We are very excited about our new factory, which we believe to be world leading in quality scampi processing. We're delighted to continue to invest in Kilkeel as we recognise the value of the dedicated Northern Irish prawn fishermen working in this area and the benefit our experienced and skilled staff bring to our business."
