Glanbia Ireland

Joint Ventures & Associates

We have three strategic Joint Ventures and Associates: Southwest Cheese in the US, Glanbia Cheese in the UK and Glanbia Ireland. These are strategically important partnerships, not only in their own right, but also in terms of the synergies and growth opportunities they bring to the wholly owned Group.

2016 Performance

Joint Ventures & Associates delivered a strong performance in the first half of 2017 with revenue increasing by 23.2% in the period. The driver of the revenue growth was a 21.8% improvement in pricing as a result of improved global dairy markets and a 1.4% increase in volumes primarily driven by Glanbia Ingredients Ireland DAC. Margin improved by 230 basis points to 6.9% and this coupled with revenue growth drove an 83.8% increase in EBITA in the first half of 2017. Due to the timing of dairy market movements the result for Joint Ventures and Associates in FY 2017 will be ahead of FY 2016 with growth weighted towards H1 2017
