Carbery Group, the Irish dairy ingredients manufacturer, has announced the formation of a 50/50 whey processing joint venture with one of South America’s leading food companies BRF Brasil Foods. The venture, which involves a shared investment of $50 million will use Carbery’s innovative technology to process whey generated at Brasil Food’s cheese making operations in one of the foremost milk producing regions in Brazil.

BRF, which employs around 115,000 people and has an annual turnover of US$13.7 billion, is the second largest collector of milk in Brazil. Together with significant pork and poultry operations, the company has fourteen dairy processing sites in Brazil together with one in Argentina and processes in excess of 1.6 billion litres of milk per annum. The company’s product portfolio includes cheese, UHT milks and fresh dairy products marketed under the Batavo and Elege brands.

Carbery’s capability to produce high quality whey protein ingredients in the country will strengthen our offerings to the leading nutritional brands there, and ensure we are positioned for further growth in a dynamic and growing economic region.”

He continues: “Furthermore, by growing our presence in emerging markets like this, Carbery is adding value to its core business in Ballineen, Ireland, and our other international facilities, in a steady and planned way, while demonstrating our ability to compete and succeed in world markets, using world-class process technology. Our R&D capabilities in Ireland are crucial to our offering, and we are truly confident of further growth and development opportunities into the future.”
