Supporting our Communities

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.

Boosting biodiversity on farms

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.

Sustainable Farm Insights programme

Glanbia Ireland has launched a new knowledge transfer programme in partnership with the media outlet, the Irish Farmers Journal, called Sustainable Farm Insights.


Dealing with food waste is regarded as one of the most significant actions to protect resources and deliver environmental efficiencies. 

Our Open Source™ code

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.

Animal Welfare

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.

Leaning green – powering our plants

Our teams are continuously assessing the latest technologies and processes to ensure our facilities become ever more efficient and achieve our vision for sustainability.

Our long heritage in quality grains

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.

Our grass-fed cows

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.
