Four of Ireland’s top food companies are set to receive a significant boost to their businesses as Center Parcs announces the awarding of food supplier contracts to its Center Parcs Longford Forest resort – due to open in summer 2019 – worth a combined total of €5.2 million.

Center Parcs has awarded food supplier contracts to fresh produce and dairy supplier Keelings, Heaney Meats in Galway, Lynas Foodservice in Coleraine and Antrim’s Henderson Foodservice. The latter two outfits will be Center Parcs Longford Forest’s premium foodservice partners.

Center Parcs is a premium family resort in a forest setting, with accommodations that include fully-equipped kitchen and dining options that include self-catering, cafes and restaurants throughout the resorts. The food suppliers announced today will supply the full range of fresh and foodservice produce to support the provision of these extensive dining options at Center Parcs.

Upon awarding the contracts, Martin Dalby, CEO of Center Parks said the group made its choices based on a similar ethos to Center Parks. “They value customers service and quality,” he said, “so we are delighted to work with these companies to ensure the food and beverage offering at our forest resort in Ireland is a very high standard.

“Our chosen suppliers carry the Board Bia Origin Green accreditation,” Dalby added. “This was a real re-assurance to us that we can deliver on the provenance and high quality that Irish families naturally expect of their food and dining experiences.”

Center Parcs Longford Forest will create approximately 750 jobs during the construction phase and when operational, the village will employ up to 1,000 people in permanent jobs and provide a €32m boost to Ireland’s economy.
