Glanbia looks into footprint

Glanbia is starting an investigation into establishing the carbon footprint of its milk suppliers.

Although the process is at an 'embryonic' stage according to a Glanbia source, the company has already visited one dairy farm near Maynooth, Co Kildare, in an attempt to establish the best way to calculate the carbon output per litre of milk produced.

Glanbia personnel say that it will be months "at least" before any data will be available from their study.
