Glanbia, the Irish and international nutritional solutions and cheese group, is selling the Yoplait franchise forIreland back to brand owner Yoplait for a cash consideration of €18 million. However, as a consequence of this decision, production will cease at Glanbia’s yoghurt facility in Inch, County Wexford.
