Kerrygold has an enviable reputation for its pedigree dairy produce which readily translates into commercial success. Established in 1962, Kerrygold was created to unite all butter from the lush ‘Emerald Isle’ under one brand featuring the distinctive namesake foil wrapping.
Launched in the north west of England, it soon became a premium brand across the British Isles and is marketed in 60 countries as ‘the very best from Ireland’.
In short, Kerrygold is successful, but the business needed to replace its existing cheese packing facility in Leek, Staffordshire, with a new 15,000 m2 factory on an adjacent site. It was a substantial, carefully planned investment that effectively avoided any interruption in production and delivery.
