Our Dairy Story

We’re proud of what we do because we believe what we do matters. Whether it’s supporting the sustainability of local farming communities or finding solutions for the food service industry, we’re a champion of Ireland’s dairy industry. From every blade of grass to every drop of milk, we’re working for a more sustainable dairy industry and developing new markets for our farmer-suppliers.

Cheesemaking is both an art and a science, requiring an in depth understanding of dairy cultures and maturation processes as well as cutting-edge R&D to calibrate cheese solutions that match the specific requirements of our global client base. This work takes us from the dairy farm to the laboratory and beyond, to professional kitchens and academic institutions in order to advance the science of cheesemaking and perfect the very best cheese for every occasion.
