Newbaze Ireland Nutrition Food (trading as Ireliffey) has opened its new dairy formula plant at Carrickmacross in County Monaghan, marking the completion of a two-year building programme with a capital investment of €20 million. The state-of-the-art facility specialises in the production and packaging of high quality nutritional dairy powder products.

The opening will result in the creation of 60 new jobs over the next three years, and is supported by the Department of Business, Enterprise, and Innovation, through Enterprise Ireland.

Speaking at the official opening Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys said: “This is a strategically important investment for Ireland and Monaghan by a leading international dairy formula manufacturer. Ireland was the first choice for the Shanghai based Newbaze Industrial Group to establish a production facility outside of China. This is due to Ireland’s long-standing reputation of having a developed dairy infrastructure with a safe milk source.

The Newbaze Group’s decision to invest and open this facility further places Ireland internationally as a location that offers quality raw dairy materials combined with a highly educated and skilled workforce. It is a major signal of confidence in the border region and the future and quality of the Irish dairy industry.”

Newbaze Ireland Nutrition Food is part of Shanghai-based Newbaze Industrial Group, which specialises in infant formula manufacture and sales. Since its establishment in 2002, Newbaze has developed multiple milk powder formulae with different specific purposes through scientific research on infant nutrition requirements. The Newbaze group employs over 500 staff across its manufacturing sites in Shanghai, Quzhou in China and Carrickmacross in Ireland.

Ding Wei, General Manager of Newbaze Ireland, said: “I’m delighted to announce the completion of the development phase and the opening of this new facility today in the beautiful county of Monaghan. This announcement on the back of our €20 million investment in 2017 increases our capacity to supply our wider international customer base. Newbaze Ireland’s future growth plan is to provide high-quality milk powder products to consumers in the Chinese market and emerging markets such as Africa, southeast Asia and the Middle East by 2020. Newbaze Ireland will provide OEM full-service solutions, to meet global market demand for a variety of milk powder product requirements.”

Alexa Toomey, Manager, Dairy, Beverages and FDI at Enterprise Ireland, said; “Enterprise Ireland is committed to supporting businesses to expand their global footprint, with the ultimate goal of delivering export growth and in turn regional jobs for Ireland. Enterprise Ireland is responsible for attracting Foreign Direct Investment from the global food industry into Ireland and the opening of this new showcase plant reflects highly on the entire Irish dairy sector ecosystem – leveraging on the many advantages of the Irish based support system including quality raw materials, equipment, technology and people.”

Newbaze Ireland is among one of the largest private dry blending dairy professional formula manufacturing facilities in Ireland with a main building area of 8,600 square meters, equipped with ISO eight cleanroom structures.
