New Jarlsberg Production Facility
The €120 million Mogeely facility was developed in a partnership arrangement with TINE SA, Norway’s largest dairy co-op. The new facility will process local dairy farmer’s milk into Jarlsberg cheese, a premium Norwegian cheese, which will be sold across Europe, providing a Brexit proof market for milk from dairy farms across Cork.
The Jarlsberg brand is a premium quality cheese brand with a strong market in the US, Australia & Europe. Mogeely, has a long history of artisan cheese making going back a century and more and is a fitting location for the new Jarlsberg Cheese production facility.
The investment in technology is the most advanced available both for cheese making and the treatment of wastewater. Dairygold and TINE SA are committed to adhering to the most stringent environmental standards set down by the EPA.
The new facility will create 67 new jobs when fully operational. Over 200 people have worked on the two-year construction following the grant of planning permission for the facility back in 2018
