40 jobs in jeopardy as meat firm hits trouble

By Margaret Canning

Around 40 jobs are at risk in Co Fermanagh after a meat business went administration for the second year in a row.

Tenderlean Limited in Derrylin supplied meat to supermarkets like Superquinn and Aldi and recently diversified into making pizzas. It also opened a butchery shop at the Kennedy Centre in west Belfast in December.

A spokeswoman for administrators Deloitte said: “The company has experienced significant pressures on working capital and the directors took the decision to place the company into administration.

“Unfortunately, there are no funds currently available to continue to trade the business. The administrators have ceased trading, but are endeavouring to find a purchaser.”

The firm appeared to have put many of its problems behind it last year after Tenderlean Meats went into administration but was bought by investors and renamed Tenderlean Limited a day later.
