Fane Valley Group is one of Ireland’s most progressive agri-food businesses, with interests in red meat — through Linden Foods and Kettlye Irish Foods — feed compounding, agricultural supplies, breakfast cereals and renewable energy.

Its dairy business is now part of Lakeland Dairies. In January this year it opened a new head office and logistics centre at Glenavy Road, Moira.
