About the company

Glenilen Farm, based in Drimoleague, West Cork, is owned by Alan & Valerie Kingston, offering a range of yoghurts, butter, cheesecakes and drinks which are available in the Irish and UK Market. Glenilen Farm also has a strong presence in the Foodservice sector with its' yoghurt jars being a top favourite at breakfast bars in hotels across the country. Glenilen Farm's unique selling point is in its' taste profile. Authentic Farmhouse Taste is what differentiates the range from its' competitors. The milk used in all the products is from the family farm, as well as neighbouring Drimoleague based farms. The products have a few simple ingredients and minimal processing to ensure the best tasting product is achieved.


Spotlight Target Area: Water
Glenilen Farm believe in the benefits of sustainable business from brand strengthening
and long-term cost savings, through stronger energy independence and believes in the
concept of bringing locally made produce to the global market. As Glenilen’s’ primary
raw material, milk, is produced on the family farm as well as being sourced from
neighbouring farms, this allows the company to have total control over its primary
raw material and ensures it is produced in the most sustainable manner possible while
adhering to the highest standards in animal welfare.
Within the water target area, Glenilen Farm performed strongly throughout 2020 with
water intensity being reduced by over 7%. This was achieved by several initiatives,
including participating in a dedicated water stewardship programme and completing
the installation of a rainwater harvesting system.
