Ornua, the country’s largest exporter of Irish dairy products, has opened a new mozzarella cheese factory in Ávila, Spain.

The factory is the result of a €30m investment and has been built on the Ornua cheese manufacturing site that was destroyed by fire in 2017. Ornua purchased the business in 2014 from Telepizza, one of Europe’s largest pizza producers, and has a long-term contract to supply Telepizza with cheese.
