Diploma in Food Manufacturing Management students with Programme Manager, Joe O'Callaghan

As part of the Diploma in Food Manufacturing Management Workshop 5, participants attended a study tour to Dairygold Co-Operative Society Limited, Castlefarm, Mitchelstown, Co Cork. Combining Dairygold’s deep-rooted farming tradition with nutritional expertise and technology, it has become a global player in supplying cheese and dairy ingredients. The study tour was highly informative, and the extent of automation was very impressive, as was Dairygold’s commitment to sustainability.

Kindly organised by a current student, Sebastian Dymarkowski (Production Shift Manager), the participants were hosted by Michael Sheehan (Site Manager), Liam Enright (Whey Products Lead/Process Optimisation Lead), Aoife Cronin (QA Officer) and Declan Geary (Production Plant Manager).
