Ballybay Food Hub

Ballybay Food Hub

Significant investment is planned for the Ballybay Food Hub to create the ideal environment for start-up and expanding food businesses in the area. County Monaghan is one of Ireland’s key food producers and is home to both national and international food companies. The food industry in the county is a key employer and 90% of its production is exported.

Building upon these key strengths, The Ballybay Food Hub offers test kitchen facilities, 500 sq ft starter units and 1,500 sq ft larger units for both start-up and established businesses to test their new product ideas before scaling up.
