Ornua has officially opened Kerrygold Park, a €38 million state-of-the-art Kerrygold butter production and packing facility in Mitchelstown, County Cork. The production facility will have a capacity of up to 50,000 tonnes of butter per annum and will initially employ 65 people.

Ornua is Ireland’s largest exporter of Irish dairy products, exporting to over 110 countries worldwide. A key part of Ornua’s growth strategy is to significantly increase sales of the Kerrygold brand. Today, Kerrygold sales retail at about €750 million, with targets to grow to €1 billion. Kerrygold Park will ensure a world-class supply chain to support both this growth target and the further development of the brand.

OrnuaLogoKerrygold Park will have the capability to produce new butter products and formats not currently available in Ireland. Kerrygold Park will also house the ‘Green to Gold’ Customer Innovation Centre, which will be a key destination for international customer visits to Ireland.

Kevin Lane, chief executive of Ornua, comments: “The opening of Kerrygold Park marks a special day for Ireland’s dairy industry. The quality of Irish milk is exceptional. From the fields to the processors, the success of Kerrygold is based on the outstanding quality of the milk and cream that goes into it. Now, we have a world-class production and packing facility to complete the value chain. Kerrygold Park is core to our ambitious plans to develop the Kerrygold brand from a butter brand to a dairy brand. Not only will the new facility significantly enhance our production, it also greatly improves our innovation capability and our ability to deliver premium dairy products to consumers around the world. This is the most effective way of securing value for Irish dairy farmers.”
