The Kerrygold brand was created by Sir Anthony O’Reilly in 1962, CEO of, what was then called, An Bord Bainne. His vision was to establish Kerrygold as a premium brand, befitting the rich quality of Irish milk. The Kerrygold story is, to a large degree, the story of Irish dairy farming. Known and loved by consumers around the world, the brand is associated with images of cows grazing in lush green pastures. Kerrygold initially launched as a single product brand and is now regarded as
Ireland’s only truly internationally-known food brand. Since its creation, Kerrygold has been synonymous with quality, and today, Kerrygold’s product portfolio covers a multitude of product ranges in markets all over the world.
Generations of dairy farmers have supplied top quality milk for the Kerrygold brand, and the success of Kerrygold around the world is attributed to the world-class milk they produce every day. Our dairy farmers are committed to the co-operative ideal; working together to produce only the very best grass-fed dairy products. Our cows graze freely on the fields of our 14,000 small family farms; each one using unique dairy farming traditions passed down through generations of family. It is this grass-fed milk that delivers the rich tasting, higher quality dairy products that Kerrygold is famous for.
Today, consumers all over the world can enjoy the unique taste of Irish grass-fed dairy. Kerrygold is currently the number one butter brand in Ireland, the number one butter and cheddar brand in Germany and the number two butter brand in the USA.
Kerrygold Butter is a premium butter, produced to the highest standards. It is a completely natural product, free from artificial colourings and flavourings. The uniquely golden colour of Kerrygold butter occurs naturally as a result of beta carotene in fresh grass and gives a distinct flavour to the butter.
Kerrygold Spreadable products combine our delicious Kerrygold Butter with olive oil, rapeseed oil or canola oil, to deliver the great taste of Kerrygold that you can spread straight from the fridge.
