Dairygold is Ireland's largest co-operative. It was formed in 1990 from the merger of two Cork co-ops, Ballylough and Mitchellstown. About 30 per cent of the co-op’s revenue derives from its agri-operations and retail businesses, with 70 per cent deriving from its dairy processing business. Dairygold processes around 940 million litres of milk annually. Some 40 to 45 per cent of Dairygold’s milk input is processed into cheese and whey, and the company is a major exporter of cheese to the UK market. In 2008 Dairygold announced the sale of its consumer brands division, which included well-known brands such as Dairygold, Galtee and Shaws ham, to Kerry Group.
