Glanbia plc is an international cheese and nutritional ingredients group, headquartered in Ireland. The Group has 4,300 employees in seven countries and sales offices in a further five. International operations include Food Ingredients & Nutritionals, while Irish operations incorporate Consumer Foods and Agribusiness & Property. The Group has three strategic joint ventures, which are based in the UK, USA and Nigeria.

Glanbia's core business in Food Ingredients & Nutritionals is predicated on having access to a series of large dairy milk pools, which are then processed into a range of cheese and dairy products. Derived from these scale processing operations is a large valuable whey stream which, with the application of complementary ingredients and technologies, creates a further product range of high margin nutritional ingredients, focused on high growth markets.
