Glanbia ready to roll with McGregor punches

Glanbia's sports nutrition company BSN said it is committed to its partnership with UFC champion Conor McGregor. BSN signed McGregor in December.

However, over the last week doubt has been cast over McGregor's career after he appeared to abruptly announce his retirement on Twitter, only to retract it later.

"BSN is committed to our partnership with Conor McGregor and we have no doubt he will continue to excel - no matter what the challenge he takes on."

The sports nutrition business has quickly risen to become one of the most important avenues for Glanbia as it continues to invest in a market believed to be worth €20bn by 2020.

Last year Glanbia's performance nutrition business was its largest earner, taking in €135.6m.
