We know dairy

Since 1972, dairy has been at the heart of Kerry’s business and has instilled a culture of sustainability and quality throughout the organisation.

Ireland is an extremely favourable and sustainable environment for dairy production. With its temperate climate, rich soil and plentiful rainfall, Ireland boasts the lowest greenhouse gas emissions per kg of milk solids and has an enviable reputation for animal care. Through our sister company, Kerry Agribusiness, we guarantee the integrity and quality of our supply chain by working in partnership with 3,600 direct milk suppliers. More on Kerry’s dairy history.

Kerry operates three state-of-the-art dairy manufacturing facilities in Ireland, where over one billion litres, or 20% of the total Irish milk pool, are processed annually via a unique, fully controlled supply chain. We also have manufacturing facilities in the United States, Europe and Asia.

Global sourcing, vertical integration and primary extraction enable us to provide you with cost-effective, high-quality dairy solutions that are safe and consistently satisfy customer needs, while complying with all applicable regulatory requirements for the food and beverage markets.
