The Economy Minister in the Northern Ireland Executive, Simon Hamilton, today unveiled Dale Farm’s new cheese processing and packing facility. This follows Dale Farm’s £7 million investment to further expand its consumer cheddar products operation.

The North’s Economy Minister Simon Hamilton, who officially opened the new cheese plant on Wednesday, said: “I am encouraged to see almost 7,000 fewer people on the unemployment register compared to one year ago.

“The Northern Ireland unemployment rate is also continuing to head in the right direction, reducing by 0.5 percentage points over the year to 6 per cent and comparing very favourably to the European Union average of 8.6 per cent.”

However, Richard Ramsey, Northern Ireland chief economist at Ulster Bank, said that, while the latest labour market statistics highlighted encouraging trends, he believes that the local labour market recovery would “not have occurred without access to labour from beyond these shores”.
