It was announced today that doTERRA, the global provider of essential oils and wellness products, is set to create up to 100 new jobs in the northern suburbs of Cork City over the next three years with the opening of the company’s first manufacturing facility outside of the United States.
The Irish operation, which will serve as doTERRA’s European Manufacturing Headquarters, will manufacture and distribute doTERRA products to the European marketplace, as well as provide increased capacity to serve other international markets, including the Middle East and Africa.
The privately held company was founded in 2008 and employs over 3,500 people in the U.S. and multiple offices around the world.
There are currently 10 employees based in Cork City, and the company will look to add a number of operations roles and warehouse staff in August as the facility ramps up to start production in September. The company will grow its staff in quality control, supply chain management, finance, legal and HR as production increases.
doTERRA’s arrival in Ireland is the result of a capital investment made by the company of more than €10m. Construction of the facility began in October 2019, and to date, the project has supported more than 60 construction jobs.
Speaking today, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys said, "I am delighted to welcome doTERRA to Ireland and the news that they are planning to create 100 jobs in Cork over the next three years. We are very pleased that the company has picked Ireland as the location for its first manufacturing facility outside of the USA. This is very welcome news at this time."
doTERRA Founding Executive and CEO, David Stirling added, "doTERRA Europe is thriving and enjoying record growth as more people continue to share and use doTERRA’s essential oils. doTERRA sources so many of its essential oils from Europe, and we are thrilled that this facility allows us to greatly reduce our carbon footprint by ensuring that these oils intended for European customers never leave Europe."
