Registered Producers/ Registered Processors

Registered Producers
Registered producers numbering 1,680 producers, are a specialist dedicated group in Ireland’s milk production structure, who are contracted to supply milk for processing for liquid consumption on an all year-round basis or for the winter months only.

Registered Processors
12 processors were registered in 2019, including one processor who was also a registered producer. The integrity and transparency of Ireland’s fresh milk supply chain for consumers and customers is evidenced by the participation of all registered producers in Bord Bia’s Sustainable Dairy Assurance Scheme and all registered processors in Bord Bia’s Origin Green Scheme.
