Consumer Products is a leading supplier of branded consumer products to the Irish grocery market. Our portfolio extends across a range of dairy products, including standard and fortified milks, cheese, butter and cream, and a range of chilled soups.
We also supply a product range – which includes UHT (Ultra-Heat-Treated) milk - to international markets. Our Avonmore brand, is Ireland’s ‘most bought’ brand, and is the second highest selling grocery brand (in value terms). Avonmore is also the No. 1 milk and cream brand in Ireland.
Other brands in our Consumer Products portfolio include Kilmeaden, Ireland’s largest block cheddar cheese, and a range of leading local milk brands including Premier, Snowcream, and CMP.
A key focus for Consumer Products is the development of its direct to consumer ‘doorstep’ channel. This has led to the launch of our award winning mymilkman.ie site, which is helping transform the doorstep channel for both consumers, and the milkmen.
Consumer Product’s is renowned for its major focus on new products. Our Innovation Centre in Kilkenny has been behind many successful launches, including our fortified milk range, which incldues Super Milk, Slimline, Heart Active, Mooju, Protein and Lactose-free. All of these milks have helped redefine the milk category in Ireland, and have established Ireland as a global leader in the consumption of fortified milks.
Consumer Products has also opened a new UHT plant at Lough Egish, County Monaghan. The plant produces long-life liquid milk and cream for export to emerging markets such as China, Europe and the Middle East. It manufactures a range of standard and fortified UHT milk and cream products, including export versions of its market leading brand, Avonmore Milk.
