Due to significant fall in demand for salmon feed year-on-year in the Irish market, Skretting, a producer and supplier of feed for farmed fish, is closing its production and administration facility in Westport, Ireland.

The company is starting a consultation period regarding the cessation of production at Westport in the near future and the transfer of feed production for the Irish market to Skretting‘s manufacturing plants in the UK. The company said this will result in 22 redundant positions in Ireland and a number of redundancies in joint services based in the UK.
