Glanbia has its origins in the Irish co-operative movement that evolved over the last century. Glanbia plc was formed in 1997 out of the merger of Avonmore Foods plc and Waterford Foods plc and today is an international nutritional solutions and cheese group, headquartered in Ireland. The Group has four segments; US Cheese & Global Nutritionals, Dairy Ireland, Joint Ventures & Associates and Other Business. Including Joint Ventures & Associates, Glanbia has over 4,300 employees worldwide and has manufacturing and processing facilities in seven countries and sales/technical support locations in 14 countries.

Glanbia employs 1,870 people and is largest dairy and cheese processor in Ireland. Glanbia Consumer Foods is the number 1 dairy supplier in the country with leading brands including Avonmore, Premier, Kilmeaden, Golden Vale, Dawn, CMP, and Snowcream in grocery categories including Milk, Cream, Cheese and Soup. Avonmore is the number 1 milk brand in the country and the number 2 grocery brand in Ireland. Glanbia is known for developing innovative dairy products including Avonmore Super Milk, Avonmore Fresh Dessert Cream and Avonmore Heart Active. All Glanbia dairy products are farmed and manufactured in the Republic of Ireland.

Glanbia Commercial Director, Michael McArdle, believes Supporting Quality gives his products an important link to key consumer demographic.Trade union members and their families are a key sector within the Irish food purchasing market. Supporting Quality provides Glanbia with a direct connection with this sector through publications and news resources they already trust.

It goes further than other campaigns which highlight to consumers that products are produced in Ireland in that it guarantees to the consumer that the workplaces they are produced is are quality workplaces. I believe such concerns will be of growing importance to Irish consumers and that Supporting Quality will be a key campaign for Glanbia into the future."
