Volac is one of Europe’s fastest growing and ambitious international dairy nutrition businesses. It all began in the 1970s when the company was established by the grandfather of the brothers who now run the company. Volac are now Ireland’s leading manufacturer of Calf Milk Replacers.
The company is a privately owned business based near Cambridge in the UK. It has seven production facilities – five in the UK, one in the Netherlands and one in Malaysia.
Volac recently invested €3.3 million in a new facility near Kells, Co Meath, at which 16 manufacturing jobs were created.
Supported by export agency Enterprise Ireland, Volac has built a finishing and packing facility which will ultimately be used for its whey protein bases.
The company plans to source Irish raw materials to supplement those bases that are supplied from Volac’s factory in Wales.
Volac’s products serve the sports nutrition, agriculture, and animal nutrition markets.
