Glanbia Ireland to invest in new R&D facilities
Glanbia Ireland is seeking to extend our Research and Development capabilities at Ballyragget in Co. Kilkenny.
An application has been lodged with relevant planning authorities to expand our existing facilities. The expansion will involve a two-storey extension to include a pilot plant, laboratories and storage.
Subject to planning permission and other necessary approvals, the planned extension will allow our newly expanded R&D team to deliver more innovative value-added products for the global marketplace. Our top class dairy and agri ingredients, as well as branded products, are exported to customers in over 70 countries globally.
Glanbia Ireland has invested €343 million in processing facilities in recent years to deliver value and produce new products from our milk pool which has grown by over 1 billion litres since 2014.
With annual revenue of €1.8 billion, Glanbia Ireland has 11 high-spec processing plants, 53 agri branches and over 1,950 employees.
