Glanbia Consumer Products, owner of the Avonmore and Premier brands, will build a new UHT (Ultra-Heat-Treated) facility to produce long-life liquid milk and cream suitable for export to emerging markets such as China, Europe and the Middle East. The new facility in Monaghan is expected to be operational by early 2014 and will employ up to 40 people. It will manufacture a range of standard and fortified UHT milk and cream products, including export versions of Glanbia’s market dairy leading brand, Avonmore Milk.

The announcement follows increased collaboration between Irish and Chinese Government Officials. China is active in seeking sustainable sources of quality dairy produce globally, to meet its growing domestic demand for dairy.

This development combined with a number of new positions being created in Global Ingredients and Global business services, will create an additional 50 skilled jobs to be located in new offices in Dublin.

There is a strong business case for this investment and we have had an excellent response from potential customers, globally.”

He adds: “We look forward to commencing operations in 2014, with first exports planned in the second half of the year.”
