Fyffes has opened a new EUR 25 million (US$ 26.67 million) banana ripening and distribution center in Balbriggan, just to the north of Dublin, Ireland.

According to a statement, when operating at full capacity the center will have an output of over 7 million bananas per week – approximating to over 60,000 tonnes annually – all for supply to Irish retailers, wholesalers and food providers.

The new facility was commissioned in November 2019. Constructed on a 10-acre site, it comprises the 8,500 sq. meters ripening and distribution center and an adjacent 1,750 sq. meters two-story office and administration block, with requisite loading bays, truck and customer parking and ancillary services areas.
