The co-op said the Monaghan site had seen significant and recurring losses prior to the merger
A major dairy processing co-op operating on the island of Ireland is making lay-offs at its site in Monaghan to reduce operating costs.
On 30 August the board of Lakeland Dairies co-op approved a plan to adjust its processing activities at the site in Monaghan, which will see some operations cease or transfer to other locations. A total of 130 staff are employed at the Monaghan site, 68 of whom will be made redundant. Some employees will be redeployed elsewhere within the business.
