Donegal seafood producer making a splash with own energy, more jobs

A Donegal seafood producer is celebrating two achievements today.

The Killybegs-based family-run Island Seafoods Ltd has achieved ‘carbon neutrality’ by generating its own green electricity which powers its entire production facility after becoming one of the first Irish food businesses to install its own wind turbine.

Meanwhile, Island Seafoods has also reeled in a new contract with Aldi Ireland, as a result of which it has been able to create five new permanent jobs.

Since 2018, Island Seafoods has supplied Aldi with its smoked mackerel products.
