Ornua was named Company of the Year 2022 at this year’s Business & Finance Awards in association with KPMG.

Ornua CEO John Jordan accepted the award on behalf of the business at the gala award ceremony, held in Dublin’s Convention Centre and attended by leading political, international business, and social leaders, including President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, and An Taoiseach Micheál Martin TD, among other distinguished guests.

Speaking about the recognition, John Jordan said: “Thank you to my colleagues at Ornua, our members, and the 14,000 Irish farming families we are proud to represent. Our success is down to their continuous commitment and dedication. An incredible achievement in a poignant year for us, having celebrated 60 years in the business just last year.”

Established in 1974, the Business & Finance Awards is the longest-running business awards programme in Ireland, acknowledging and celebrating excellence in innovation, growth and scale of Irish enterprise. The Company of the Year Award recognises businesses that have excelled in demonstrating business leadership, sustainable growth, innovative strategy and employee development.

For over six decades, the business has brought the unique taste of Irish grass-fed dairy to audiences across the world, returning value to its member suppliers, and the community of Irish farming families they represent. With 10 business units worldwide, including 16 production facilities, and a global team of 3,000 employees, Ornua says it is committed to collaborative innovation and sustainable growth, meeting the evolving needs of customers and consumers in 110 export markets.
