Alderman Amanda Grehan, Chair of LCCC’s Development Committee, is delighted to hear the latest expansion news from Irish food oil firm Frylite Ltd. The hospitality supplier has just launched a new depot in Lisburn to accommodate the increased demand for its products.

The company currently employs 230 staff across their existing bases in Coleraine, Cork, Dublin, Galway, and its headquarters in Strabane.
