dōTERRA Hosts Ireland’s Finance Minister, Michael McGrath TD, at Official Opening of Cork Manufacturing Facility
The state-of-the-art facility is dōTERRA’s first manufacturing facility located outside of the United States
Located in the northern suburbs of Cork, Ireland, dōTERRA announced the official opening of its Cork manufacturing facility at an event held on May 26, 2023. The facility is the first manufacturing facility of its kind to be developed outside of the United States and will serve as dōTERRA’s European manufacturing headquarters.
“Our new facility demonstrates dōTERRA’s long-term vision and commitment to supporting our growing customer base throughout Europe and surrounding markets,” said Greg Cook, dōTERRA Co-Founder and Board Chair. “Our presence in Ireland has created employment opportunities for skilled workers, improved our ability to respond to our customers’ needs, and dramatically reduced our environmental impact.”
The facility currently employs 65 highly skilled and trained staff and produces ~10,000,000 bottles of essential oils each year. As production increases, the company will grow its staff in quality control, supply chain management, finance, legal, and HR, with the ability to increase to 100 team members over time.
Ireland’s Finance Minister, Michael McGrath TD, said “I am delighted to officially open this fantastic new manufacturing facility for dōTERRA. By investing over €12 million in this facility in Cork, it shows a real vote of confidence by dōTERRA in Ireland as the location for its European manufacturing headquarters.”
At 95,000 sq. ft., the state-of-the-art facility consists of cleanrooms, bottling rooms, office space, testing laboratories, cold storage and warehousing. The facility will continue distributing dōTERRA products to the European marketplace and increasing capacity for other international markets including the Middle East and Africa.
CEO of IDA Ireland, Michael Lohan Ireland said, “An ideal geographic location combined with local resources and a skilled workforce makes Ireland a strategic entry point to Europe. dōTERRA’ s presence in Cork shows the confidence business leaders have in a region that is known for its adaptability and agility. IDA Ireland looks forward to a continued partnership with dōTERRA and wish them every success.”
