The food and nutrition business' new identity “reflects the unique characteristics that define the dynamic organisation”
Glanbia Ireland, a food and nutrition business, has revealed it will in future be known as Tirlán.
Tirlán was unveiled on 31 August 2022, simultaneously to employees and farmer shareholders during an event hosted in the new collaboration centre at Abbey Quarter in Kilkenny, Ireland.
According to a spokesperson for the company, the new identity was "crafted to reflect the unique characteristics that define the dynamic organisation".
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.
From its base in the southeast of Ireland, Tirlán sources its high-quality dairy and grains from a network of over 6,000 farm families. Tirlán has a diverse portfolio of high quality dairy and plant-based ingredients, along with leading consumer and agribusiness brands.
Tirlán is one of the top dairy processors in Europe processing 3 billion litres of milk annually into a wide range of high quality ingredients and solutions for export globally. As the largest buyer and user of Irish grains, Tirlán handles over 270,000 tonnes, including a portfolio of premium grains.
A further launch event took place in Tokyo, Japan, supported by Bord Bia and the Irish Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Charlie McConalogue.
