Opening the brewery, Taoiseach Enda Kenny said, “St James Gate has a long history of supporting local jobs while sending iconic Irish brands around the world. The Government’s plan for recovery will see continued support for our indigenous export orientated food and drink sector which provides jobs across the island of Ireland.”
Ivan Menezes, CEO of Diageo, added: ?This is a great day for Diageo and a great day for Guinness, one of the most iconic brands, not just in Ireland, but around the world. Our decision back in late 2011 to invest in St James’s Gate represented a €169 million vote of confidence by Diageo in Guinness and in our beer business. It also represented a major vote of confidence in the Irish economy itself. Diageo’s operations in Ireland support the employment of 20,000 people in the Irish economy, not least through our purchase of goods and services to the value of €350m a year.”
