Volac's newest factory is now in operation.
It's a purpose-built finishing and packing facility at Mullagh, near Kells, Co. Meath and the first pallet load of our instantised milk replacer for lambs — Lamlac®— made its way off the line in October.
The facility will allow us to source selected Irish raw materials needed to supplement fat-filled Imunopro® whey protein bases, supplied by our factory in Felinfach, Wales.
The investment in the Kells site maintains our Irish connections and reflects our confidence in the growth potential of Irish and overseas young animal milk formula markets.
We believe it will allow us to better meet the needs of our milk formula customers.
David Neville, Managing Director of Animal Nutrition recently commented, “In 2008, Volac purchased the Golden Maverick brand portfolio, Ireland’s leading range of animal milk replacers. Since then the Irish milk replacer market has seen fantastic growth which we expect to continue in line with the ambitions of the Irish dairy industry.”
