Ornua, the producer of Kerrygold Irish butter, is celebrating 20 years of success in the United States.
Kerrygold is the number two butter brand nationally with US consumers purchasing 2.6 million blocks of the iconic gold foil each week.
Kerrygold has been exporting its Butter to the US since 1999, and has enjoyed recent success with double-digit volume growth in the market for the last nine years.
To celebrate this milestone, Kerrygold hosted a butter lunch in New York prepared by West Cork’s Rob Krawczyk of Ballydehob’s Michelin star Restaurant Chestnut.
Food editors, writers, and influencers were invited to the intimate gathering which focused on the superior quality and rich taste of Irish grass-fed dairy.
“Kerrygold’s success in the US market is a result of decades of investment by Irish dairy farmers coupled with their commitment to producing high-quality, grass-fed dairy that is loved all over the world,” Róisín Hennerty, Managing Director of Ornua Foods said.
“Kerrygold is largely the story of Irish family farming which is rooted in honest, transparent origins and traditions. It’s our job to share this compelling story to protect and maintain our premium position in the market; a premium which adds value to Irish milk, helping secure strong returns for Irish dairy farmers.”
