Milk Processing Plant being considered for Kilcorney Creamery

One of the major agribusiness news items during the week was that Coca-Cola are planning to set up a milk plant in Ireland. Not exceptional news as it is well known that Coca-cola is moving to diversify away from sugary drinks.

However, speaking to John yesterday, he was telling us that Coca-Cola have actually been exploring the possibility of setting up their milk plant on the site of the old creamery in Kilcorney.
