Ireland: co-operativ Tirlán

The Irish Glanbia Co-operative Society Limited (“Glanbia Co-op”) and Glanbia Ireland, a food and nutrition business, have revealed that they will in future be known as Tirlán. Combining the Irish words ‘Tír’ for land and ‘Lán’ for full, Tirlán stands for ‘Land of Abundance’ and represents the deep connection and relationship between the Co-op, its people and the land they nurture together to farm and sustain. In December 2021, farmer shareholders of Glanbia Co-op voted in favour of purchasing the remaining 40 percent stake in Glanbia Ireland from Glanbia plc to become the owners of the Irish dairy and grain business. As a co-operative, Tirlán is 100 percent farmer-owned, with 11 processing facilities, 52 agri-branches and over 2100 employees. Sales revenue this year is forecast to exceed 3 billion (10*9) euro. It recently commenced construction of a 200 million euro cheese facility, in a joint venture with the Holland headquartered private dairy Royal A-ware.
