Glanbia at risk of losing 9m litres in Leinster
A group of Glanbia suppliers who have refused to sign milk supply contracts with the company are considering forming a representative group and offering to sell their milk as a single entity.
The group of around 20 farmers are understood to have a milk pool of close to 2m gallons or 9m litres. They are based in Carlow, Kilkenny and south Wexford.
The group is believed to have held a formal meeting last night to discuss whether to form a representative structure or set up a co-op.
The farmers were unhappy with the contract offered by Glanbia Ingredients Ireland (GII) and refused to sign it.
Strathroy could be a possible buyer for the group's milk. The Northern processor is already collecting milk in the region from former Wexford Creamery suppliers.
