Dairy as well as most other fast moving consumer goods categories have been significantly affected by the global Covid-19 crisis.
Glanbia Ireland has launched a new knowledge transfer programme in partnership with the media outlet, the Irish Farmers Journal, called Sustainable Farm Insights.
Glanbia Ireland has been eager to play our part in supporting our communities through the challenges of Covid-19. We have been working with community groups across the areas where we all work and live.
Habitats such as hedges, watercourses and field margins are features that define the Irish agricultural landscape and boost the biodiversity and sustainability of our farms.
Dealing with food waste is regarded as one of the most significant actions to protect resources and deliver environmental efficiencies.
The commitment of Irish farmers to the animals in their care and our outdoor grass-based milk production system ensures that the health and welfare of animals in Irish dairy herds sets a leading standard internationally.
We work together with our farmers at every step along the supply chain to realise energy efficiencies for the betterment of the environment and the economic sustainability of the farm.
Our Open Source™ Programme is Glanbia Ireland’s sustainability and quality assurance programme that seeks to protect, enhance and promote the integrity of our products from primary producer to end-user.
Glanbia Ireland was one of the driving forces in creating Dairy Sustainability Ireland to help drive change for the future.
Our teams are continuously assessing the latest technologies and processes to ensure our facilities become ever more efficient and achieve our vision for sustainability.
Glanbia Ireland has a long heritage in grains as the country’s largest buyer and user of Irish grains. Due to our strong investment in a state-of-the-art milling facility, we have positioned ourselves as a sought-after gluten-free oats provider which has delivered strong premium contracts for our farmers.
When it comes to our herds, our cows spend most of the year outside grazing on acres of rich and plentiful grass. Due to our temperate climate with abundant rainfall, in winter they move inside and enjoy a diet of grass ensiled from the fields during summer.
