Supervalu owner lobbies government to expand non-EU work visa eligibility

SuperValu and Centra owner Musgrave, one of the country’s largest employers, met with the government to highlight concerns over labor shortages and its ability to recruit staff from outside the Economic Area European.

The lobbying record shows the food retail, wholesale and distribution giant, which has more than 35,000 people working in the business and its franchise stores in Ireland, met with various TDs, Ministers and Ministers of State, including Damien English from the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment. In November, Musgrave discussed work visa requirements to facilitate recruitment from countries outside the EEA.
