Glanbia Cheese Limited, the Joint Venture business between Irish-based nutrition company Glanbia plc and US dairy company Leprino Foods company, plans to build a new mozzarella cheese manufacturing facility in Portlaoise, Co Laois, Ireland.
Glanbia has unveiled a €21m whey protein isolate (WPI) investment at its Dairy Ingredients Ireland (DII) Ballyragget facility – the Irish dairy giant’s latest expansion effort driven by the up-coming milk quota abolition.
Demand for whey products underpinned a strong first quarter for Glanbia with analysts hailing an ‘encouraging start’ to the year, but the firm has dismissed talk that it plans to spin-off its Dairy Ireland business as 'speculation'.
Irish dairy firm Glanbia says that booming US cheddar export sales fed into a strong 2012, but warned that the key risk to the global dairy market in 2012 centred on “significant concerns” regarding the global economic downturn and its effect on consumers.
Since it opened two years ago, Glanbia's R&D center in Twin
Falls, Idaho, has set about addressing some of the problems that
plague formulators working with whey protein ingredients. Jess
