We process almost three billion litres of milk annually into a range of solutions and ingredients for export to global markets. Through our expertise, innovation and top-class processing environments, we deliver the very best nutrition solutions to international food and nutrition companies across a range of sectors. Our ingredients portfolio is made up:

Dairy Powders: Tirlán manufactures milk powder ingredients that are made from the highest quality milk to meet the demands of the manufacturers across a wide range of applications including beverages, confectionary, bakery, ice-cream and yoghurt products. Our range of dairy powders can be used as an alternative to fresh milk providing optimal functionality, efficient processing, and a great milky flavour.

Protein and Nutritional Powders: We offer a range of Protein and Nutritional powders to match the ever-changing demands of the food and nutrition industry and its consumers. Our bespoke range of Protein and Nutritional powders is available in a wide portfolio to suit all needs. Our portfolio includes functional dairy proteins for use in everyday foods as well as nutritional dairy proteins for use in clinical, medical and sports nutritional products. We also have a range of infant grade powders.

Cheese & Butterfats: Tirlán has a long history of processing butter and has been at the forefront of cheddar cheese technology for more than 60 years. We produce a wide range of high-quality natural cheeses and butters with the right tastes and performance characteristics for all your application needs. Our experience developing award-winning cheese for international retail, foodservice and ingredients markets is globally recognised.

Grains & Plant Based: Sourced from Irish family farms, we take great care to guarantee the highest quality of oats - conventional, organic, and gluten-free. Oats are an excellent source of nutrition as they naturally contain between 11-13% protein. In addition, they are high in soluble fibres, especially β-Glucans which can help to reduce and lower cholesterol. They are low in sugar, salt and saturated fat, and contain a range of minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium and zinc. Oats are one of the most promising raw materials for preparation of functional plant-based food. Our extensive range of oat flakes and flours can be used in a range of solutions and applications to deliver great-tasting, highly functional and nutritious products.

Affordable Nutrition: Our Fat-Filled Milk Powder (FFMP) is designed to offer an affordable alternative source of dairy nutrition without compromising on taste and texture. We are the largest producer of fat-filled milk powder (FFMP) in Europe. Our FFMP is made with the highest quality milk from Irish pastures, blended with vegetable oils, and enriched with added vitamins. Being pioneers in the fat-filled business over 50 years, Millac is the original fat filled milk powder brand. The Millac brand is synonymous with quality dairy powders and features exclusively in some of the world’s best-loved milk powder and yoghurt brands.

Quality is at the core of everything we do
