Corr na Móna Salmon Smoking Company Completes Programme to maximise Processing Efficiencies
Connemara Fisheries are delighted to announce the completion of a capital investment programme at their factory in Corr na Móna, Co. Galway.
The investment consisted of technical improvements to the factory interior and the installation of a state of the art control system for the fish smoking unit.
Thomas Cadden of Connemara Fisheries said “We process and smoke the best quality salmon here in Corr na Móna. We’re delighted to make these improvements which will make us more efficient and will ensure very consistent product quality, smoking salmon is a delicate process and we need excellent control of time, temperature and the volume of smoke to produce a premium product.”
Thomas Cadden also stated, “The grant aid that we sought for the project will be helpful to offset the investment costs, the grant approved for the work was critical to the timely and successful delivery of the project and we are grateful for the support from BIM and the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.”
The investment was completed with support from Bord Iascaigh Mhara, Ireland’s Seafood Development Agency, through the Brexit Processing Capital Support Scheme 2023, Brexit Adjustment Reserve fund from the European Union.
The total investment, on the project was €34,220 and grant aid of €17,110 was approved for the project by Bord Iascaigh Mhara, Ireland’s Seafood Development Agency.
