Established in 1994 by Diarmuid O’Sullivan, Irish Yogurts’ aim was to produce Traditional Churn made Yogurt to be supplied to retail outlets nationwide.
The company has grown from a small one person Artisan operation in 1994 to an award winning, highly successful internationally recognised food company located in Clonakilty, West Cork operating from two sites in the town employing over 160 people locally.
The Yogurt is made in the churn the traditional way, giving great taste and an extra creamy body & texture to our entire range of products. Fresh Milk, Live Yogurt Cultures and Real Fruit are used to give excellent flavour and produce a wide variety of yogurts including the fat free “Diet” range, Low Fat varieties as well as more luxurious full fat Custard Style and Thick & Creamy yogurts with added cream. The Milk and Cream comes from Local family farms in West Cork. The Churn process is an Artisan Method and at Irish Yogurts we are famous for producing great tasting artisan quality products.
