Ballyrashane Creamery

Ballyrashane Creamery boasts a number of “firsts” in technology, including the first dairy in Ireland to collect bulk milk, the first to install a leading edge butter facility, and the first to get all of its electrical energy from a purpose-built anaerobic digester plant on site!

Ballyrashane Creamery has a substantial liquid milk business, and a 35,000 sq ft butter production, that is amongst the most advanced in Europe.

Recent investment has doubled the previous manufacturing capacity for butter, and has enabled the business to increase sales of its innovative premium butter products, as well as opening up new global opportunities.

A key development has been the investment in a new plant and process which makes texturized butter, making this site one of only five in the world with this capability.

The site also makes delicious Regato cheese for the export market.
