On Thursday 15th May, Prime Minister Dr. Joseph Muscat visited AppleCore Foods Ltd, at Hardrocks Business Park in Naxxar, accompanied by Hon. Dr Ian Borg, Parliamentary Secretary for EU Funds and 2017 Presidency, and Hon. Dr José Herrera, Parliamentary Secretary for Competitiveness and Economic Growth.

After taking a tour around the state-of-the-art premises at the AppleCore Foods offices and warehousing facilities, the Prime Minister thanked the company for their custom and applauded the successes achieved in their operation.

Supported by EU funding for Capex through the Jeremie Scheme, AppleCore Foods is today a leading importer and distributor of top quality food and beverage brands in Malta that employs 34 employees and has experienced exponential growth in recent years.

The Prime Minister explained that in September 2013, a €11 million top-up was added to fund the Jeremie scheme for SMEs – all of which has already been completely taken up by Maltese SMEs.
