The large frozen and chill storage unit, measuring 15,000 square feet, took approximately one year to complete and extends M&P O’Sullivan’s already vast premises considerably. The extension allows for the storage of frozen and chill produce such as meat, vegetables, breads and desserts, and plays a vital role in fulfilling supply and demand among the Cork wholesalers’ customer base located across the Munster region. From supermarkets and convenience stores – including the company’s retail franchise, Gala – to restaurants, take-aways and even ice-cream and fish-and-chip vans, M&P O’Sullivan’s brand names and products are central to daily life for countless food service providers and their customers. This new extension will allow the team behind the famous name to increase their efficiency and professional scope, leading to success and a smooth operation for all involved.
The build also denotes a good news story for the local economy, with in excess of 30 jobs created as a result of its inception in the areas of construction, transport and logistics and retail. In order to grow the business and put forward such economic opportunities, the company also put a significant investment behind the extension, with the total figure estimated at €500,000.
