This new facility provides us with significant new financial flexibility to deliver on our growth objectives while aligning our financing arrangements with our sustainability targets.”

The RCF is provided by Allied Irish Banks plc, Barclays Bank Plc, Coöperatieve Rabobank U.A. (trading as Rabobank Dublin), Danske Bank A/S, Irish Branch, HSBC Continental Europe, The Governor and Company of the Bank of Ireland. Allied Irish Banks plc acted as sustainability co-ordinator and Bank of Ireland acted as agent. Greencore was advised by IBI Corporate Finance.
