Our ingredients

Our quality ingredients range from consumer brands to powders for the infant nutrition and health sectors.

You can trace the exceptional quality of our products and ingredients back to our fully owned milk pool of 4,800 farms. With our independently audited, grass-fed herds free to graze on Ireland’s rich pasturelands for up to 300 days a year, our customers know that the milk that enters our processing plants is sustainably produced and meets the highest standards. We then use the perfect blend of experience, innovation and top-class processing environments to deliver the very best dairy and nutrition solutions.
