The Carbery Milk Quality Awards place an emphasis on milk quality, sustainability, healthy cows, hygienic facilities, and excellent farming practices. Carbery says these factors are “essential to the quality of raw material supplied which leads to a superior end product.” Owned by farming families, Carbery Group processes close to 500 million litres of milk per annum to produce award-winning cheeses and food ingredients in Ballineen.
