Our history and the evolution of Glanbia

Our story

Glanbia has deep roots in the Irish Co-operative movement which evolved over the last century. Glanbia was formed in 1997 out of the merger of two progressive organisations Avonmore Foods and Waterford Foods. Stronger together and rebranded Glanbia, it instantly became one of Europes biggest dairy producers.


Setting the foundation for future growth across the globe

With over one hundred years of history to build on, so began an exciting new phase of growth and expansion. As Glanbia started to expand, the world around us was changing rapidly with consumers becoming more conscious about the importance of nutrition, health and wellness in their lives. The Group invested significantly in the cheese plants in Idaho, USA and Magheralin, Northern Ireland and in 2004, in partnership with the Greater Southwest Milk Agency, it invested in a greenfield cheese plant in New Mexico, USA.

Growth continues to soar

Through further strategic acquisitions, innovation and investment Glanbia has grown to become a world leader in nutritional solutions and is the number 1 global performance nutrition brand. 2017 marked the seventh year of consecutive double digit growth for the Group.
