Good News Keeps On Landing For The Good Fish Co.
One of Cork’s leading seafood producers and retailers is celebrating on the double this month. The Good Fish Company recently broke ground on its next-generation processing facility at Shanbally in Cork Harbour and has now been confirmed as a finalist for the 2023 Seafood Excellence Global awards, taking place in Spain on April 25th.
Good Fish Processing employs over 100 staff in Cork, supplying many of Ireland’s and Europe’s major retailers and food service operators with seafood that is sourced from the most trusted and respected Irish & Worldwide sources, steeped in their own sustainable practices.
Founded by Denis Good in 1988 and celebrating its 35th year in business in 2023, the company currently operates out of two processing facilities in Carrigaline. The Good Fish Co. also has four other retail locations across the county in Douglas, Kinsale, Carrigaline and Ballincollig.
“This awards news is coming at an exciting time for the Good Fish Company, as our new facility will be a leading development of its kind and will allow us to utilise the very latest in sustainable technologies to produce the highest-quality Irish seafood for our clients, here at home and overseas,” Donagh Good, Managing Director, said.
The new processing development will be strategically located next to Cork Container Terminal to facilitate immediate export, as well as allowing for quick access to the M28 and Ireland’s motorway network. The construction project led by contractor Mark Coveney Ltd. will deliver additional capacity for the company, increasing its current operating floor space three-fold.
The factory’s build will be underpinned by a specific focus on achieving excellence across a range of energy efficiency measures, while continuing to deliver on sustainability requirements as a Bord Bia Origin Green and Fishery Improvements Project member. It will include a dedicated Research & Development (R&D) area, with the very latest cutting-edge technology installed as part of the upgrade.
