The firm’s co-managing partner, Joe Hughes, was formers the director of global supply chain processes at Kerry Group. The other co-founder, Conor Duggan, also previously worked at Kerry Group, as a global process integration architect.
"In late 2016, we launched Ornua 2021, our group five-year plan, and as part of this plan, it was evident that we needed to focus on the integration of these businesses to help standardise our operating model," said an Ornua spokeswoman.
"We have engaged with Pebble to support us in this process and this project relates solely to standardisation."
Ornua has been under pressure in the US following the launch of Glanbia’s new consumer brand, Truly Grass Fed, which focuses on the sale of cheese.
