Dairygold welcomes An Bord Pleanála’s decision to grant permission for the development of state of the art facilities for the manufacture of Jarlsberg® cheese in Mogeely, Co. Cork.
The proposal involves a commercial partnership between Dairygold and TINE SA, Norway’s largest farmer owned dairy Co-Operative and owner of the Jarlsberg® cheese brand. Under the proposal TINE SA will invest in the development while Dairygold‘s investment in the project will provide a Brexit-proof route to market for locally produced milk.
Dairygold, through its strategic partnership has been manufacturing Jarlsberg® cheese, on behalf of TINE SA, in Mogeely for a number of years. This new dedicated Jarlsberg® factory will significantly increase production capacity with a potential to produce up to 20,000 tonnes annually. The cheese produced at the new facility will be exported to Europe, the US and further afield.
