McColgan's Quality Foods Ltd is to create 43 jobs in County Tyrone following an investment of £7.3m.

The Strabane company makes savoury and sweet pastries. The money from the Department of Trade, Enterprise and Industry, will be used for equipment.

Manging director Grainne Hampton said it would help with long-term growth.

"Our position as one of the leading savoury and sweet pastry manufacturers in the UK and Ireland will be strengthened by this," she said.

"The installation of cutting edge technology and production processes such as fully automated cook, cool and chill production lines will increase our capabilities as well as our capacity."
