Glanbia Opens New €15 Million UHT Milk Processing Facility

Glanbia Consumer Foods Ireland has officially opened its new state-of-the-art UHT (Ultra-Heat-Treated) milk processing facility at Lough Egish in County Monaghan. With processing capacity for up to 100 million litres of milk per annum, the new facility will produce a range of standard and fortified UHT milk and cream products for export under Glanbia’s market leading brand, Avonmore.

40 new jobs have been created at Lough Egish, 21 of which have already been filled, representing a total investment of €15 million by Glanbia, with support from Enterprise Ireland. A range of long-life liquid milk and cream products suitable for export to global markets including Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia will be produced at the site while value added milk and cream will also be produced at the facility in the near future.

The new facility has a number of innovative technological features, developed in conjunction with Glanbia’s Innovation Centre in Kilkenny and supported by Enterprise Ireland. These include dual processing, which means that raw milk can be processed using direct or indirect heat, resulting in a fresher UHT product and a unique double homegenisation system for the production of cream. These technological innovations have led to the development of a pipeline of high end, premium products which deliver enhanced culinary performance to global food customers.

Henry Corbally, chairman of Glanbia Group, comments: “The opening of this facility is further evidence of our support for the liquid milk business in Ireland. This new best-in-class facility will play a key role in our strategy to further develop an international business for Irish liquid milk and cream products and will ensure that our relationship with our farmer suppliers continues to deliver significant benefits and opportunities to them.”

Glanbia Consumer Foods Ireland is a leading supplier of branded consumer products to the Irish market. It is part of Glanbia Group, the global nutrition company, which has a turnover of over €3.5 billion, employs almost 6,000 people and has a presence in 34 countries worldwide.
