Glanbia Ingredients Ireland Limited (GIIL) and Diageo were voted cream of the crop, as they took home first prize for ‘Best Business to Business Partnership’ at the recent annual Responsible Business Awards ceremony in London for their ‘Sustainable Cream initiative’.

Over 400 European companies entered the awards, of which there were 91 finalists shortlisted and 13 overall category winners. The two companies were recognised for jointly creating a benchmark sustainability programme, for the entire process chain from the fresh milk supplied by Glanbia’s farmers, all the way to the final product – Baileys Irish Cream liqueur.

Glanbia Ingredients Ireland is the sole supplier of cream to Baileys – a partnership which is in existence since 1974. Wherever a glass of Baileys is consumed around the world, it is made with Irish cream from Glanbia in Virginia, County Cavan.

Jim Bergin, CEO of Glanbia Ingredients Ireland Limited, says: “It is a huge achievement for both Diageo and Glanbia Ingredients Ireland to be internationally recognised for our B2B partnership, the ‘Sustainable Cream initiative’. The success of the initiative has demonstrated that an uncompromising focus on sustainability can have long-term commercial benefits.”

Over the course of the Sustainable Cream Initiative, Diageo and GIIL worked together to deliver a truly transformational programme resulting in best practice guidelines contributing to a reduction in the environmental footprint of the industry.

Luis Rangel, Global Head of Commodities and Raw Materials for Diageo, says: “It is a great honour to be recognised for our outstanding B2B relationship with Glanbia. For Diageo, it is important that our business partners share our values with respect to sustainability, responsible sourcing and ethical business practices. Glanbia has been an outstanding example for everything this award represents.”
