The group operates across two divisions, Ornua Foods and Ornua Ingredients, and supplies various high-quality brands, including Kerrygold, Pilgrims Choice, Forto, and BEO milk powders.

Ornua’s extensive industry expertise places it at the forefront of food and beverage industry trends, food and drink business, and food and drink consumer trends. Looking ahead, Galvin’s strategic vision positions the company for continued growth and investment in the years to come.
