Lacpatrick Dairies NI
LacPatrick was formed in July 2015 as a result of the merger of Ballyrashane and Town of Monaghan Co-ops. The two companies shared a passion for excellent product quality, a shared geography, and complementary production facilities, technologies and customers.
LacPatrick remains true to its roots and operates as an independent co-operative still owned by local farmers and which contributes financially, socially and environmentally to the local rural community.
Milk is directly sourced from farmer suppliers allowing the company to have full ‘Grass to Glass’ traceability. Milk is sampled on collection at every farm and undergoes rigorous testing and quality controls before it is accepted for processing at the plants which include Ballyrashane, Artigarvan and Monaghan.
In September 2012, Ballyrashane became the first dairy processor in Northern Ireland to commission an anaerobic digestion plant, that converts organic matter, to renewable energy, this ground-breaking project has won several environmental awards.
LacPatrick dairies through continuous investment in the development of plant and facilities, is at the forefront in the latest production techniques, hygiene practices and new technology.
The commitment to product safety and quality is confirmed by the sites holding several world-wide recognised accreditations including BRC issue 7 Grade AA.
