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.

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.”
