Pork products producer, Olhausen is to close its three plants with the loss of 160 jobs, workers at the company were told today.
BDO's Jim Hamilton and David O'Connor have been appointed receivers and managers of the firm, which has three plants in Blanchardstown, Coolock and Monaghan.
Siptu representatives said workers had been told this morning the plants would close, with the loss of all 160 jobs, as the company was not considered a going concern.
The company let some 230 workers go in 2008.
Siptu organiser Colm Casserly said discussions with the receivers were ongoing over outstanding wages and redundancy terms.
Headquartered in Blanchardstown, the company was established as a retail butcher shop in 1896 in Talbot Street. Dublin, and had since evolved into a supplier of pork-based meats.
