Glenilen Farm has joined forces with Irish retail brand Eason to ‘encourage children to learn about sustainability in a fun way’.
The yoghurt-maker noted that the partnership will see 12 new activities for children included on the inner sleeves of Glenilen Farm kids’ yoghurts and a weekly competition to win an Eason voucher.
Glenilen Farm is a family-owned food producer that makes fresh dairy products using local milk.
It began in the kitchen of Valerie and Alan Kingston’s home in Drimoleague, Co. Cork, in 1997.
It currently processes almost 100,000 litres of milk weekly, churning out a quarter of a million pots of yoghurt each week.
Valerie Kingston said, “Every parent wants to see their children reading and learning about the environment. Our passion at Glenilen Farm is creating wholesome food that’s good for people in the most sustainable way possible. We only use local milk, have solar panels, rainwater collection systems, and thousands of native trees on Glenilen Farm.
“We even keep pigs to eat any food waste from the factory. We want to share our love of the environment with the next generation, showing them that small changes can make a world of a difference.”
Leading Book And Magazine Retailer
Eason is Ireland’s leading retailer of books, magazines and stationery.
It has been in operation for 135 years and has a network of over 50 outlets in Ireland.
Brendan Corbett, group head of marketing with Eason, said, “[It’s] great to partner with an Irish company who shares our passion for engaging with families, and with children, in particular.”
The partnership between Glenilen Farm and Eason will run until the end of the year.
