In 2006, Glanbia Foods (in a joint venture with the Greater Southwest agency) opened Southwest Cheese in Clovis, New Mexico which operates as both a cheese and whey production facility. Our locations are surrounded by some of the richest agricultural and dairy lands in the United States, allowing us to partner with local dairy farmers to receive the freshest ingredients. All of our facilities receive the highest-quality milk available on a daily basis.
Glanbia Foods is continually expanding its world-class processing facilities to meet the growing demand for more high-quality cheese. Our customers are among the top food processing companies in the world, receiving the highest-quality, best-value dairy products available. Our cheeses are consistently ranked among the top in their class in national and international cheese competitions. We attribute all of our success to our over 600 dedicated employees, quality dairy partners, and our exceptional customers.
At Glanbia Foods, we are committed to delivering only the best cheese and whey ingredients to our customers. We follow lean manufacturing principles to ensure that our operations are running at optimal performance levels, and believe in a teamwork approach that leads to success.
Glanbia Foods is a division of Glanbia plc, a leading international food and ingredient company headquartered in Kilkenny, Ireland. Glanbia plc is one of Europe's leading dairy companies, and one of the world's largest cheese manufacturers.
