Glanbia to temporarily close powder plant

Published 26 October 15

Glanbia is to temporarily close its €180m powder plant, in Belview Co Kilkenny, and will channel the milk into its Ballyragget facility to make cheese and butter instead. The decision is reportedly not linked to technical difficulties the plant previously suffered, but due to the lack of return in the powder market at present. The plant can process around 3m litres/day.
