Ornua (formerly the Irish Dairy Board) is an agri-food commercial co-operative that markets and sells dairy products on behalf of its members, Ireland’s dairy processors and, in turn, the Irish dairy farmer. It’s Ireland’s largest exporter of Irish dairy products and proud owner of the iconic Kerrygold brand.
Ornua has sales and marketing teams working in-market across all four corners of the globe. Headquartered in Dublin, it exports to over 110 countries with annualised sales of circa 2.5 billion. In September 2016 Ornua opened Kerrygold Park, a 38 million state-of-the-art butter production and packing facility in Mitchelstown, Co. Cork. The 65,000 sq. ft. facility has a production capacity of c. 50,000 tonnes a year with 63 product lines expected to operate from the facility in 2017.
As part of this investment, Ornua decided to improve and develop the packaging for their Kerrygold spreads range. Quinn Packaging having been a trusted supplier to Ornua for over two decades was the preferred partner for this project.
