One in Seven Babies Worldwide drink products manufactured in Ireland

The rapid growth of dairy farming in Ireland has led to our position as one of the leading global exporters of infant milk formula.  One in seven babies worldwide drink products manufactured in Ireland (2014). The three biggest infant formula producers, Abbott, Danone and Wyeth are based in Ireland and manufacturing infant milk for export to markets in Europe, South East Asia, Middle East, Latin America and Canada.  This is an exciting sector to work in with plenty of opportunity from grass root level right through to manufacturing and sales.

Dairy Farming in Ireland is experiencing extraordinary change and growth. From 2010-2016 a further 300,000 cows were added to Irish dairy farms bringing the national herd to 1.4 million cows. Teagasc expects that by 2025, approximately 6,000 people will be needed to enter the industry as both employees on larger scale dairy farms and to succeed farmers who plan on retiring.

The expansion of dairy farming had led to an increase in Ireland’s milk production. Figures for 2017 showed Ireland’s National Milk Production was over 7 million litres. This is an increase of almost 10% on figures for 2016. Much of this milk is processed and manufactured as infant milk. Three of the world leading nutritional companies are located here in Ireland, Abbott, Danone and Wyeth and exporting Irish produce in European and International markets.
