Thurles Fresh Milk

All our dairy products are produced fresh at our Dairy in Thurles.

So if it says Thurles on the pack, you can be sure that there’s nothing but goodness and freshness inside.

All our milk is sourced from farms within 12km of Thurles and indeed in one case the milk is produced literally across the road from the Dairy. The cows could actually walk across themselves to the dairy. Contrast this with the high carbon miles and time taken to transport much of the milk sold in County Tipperary. There is no contest over which is Fresher and you are also helping out with the environment.

Support Thurles Fresh Milk products and contribute to the local economy, local jobs and local organisations. We pride ourselves with your help on being able to put something back into our local community.

NDC Mark

The National Dairy Coucil mark gives consumers the assurance that they are supporting local jobs, because the milk or cream they are buying has been farmed and processed in the Republic of Ireland. Thurles Fresh Milk has been licenced to carry the NDC mark since its development in 2009.

The School Milk and Dairy Programme

Through the EU-subsidised School Milk and Dairy Programme, Thurles Fresh Milk provides a year-round supply of milk, to children in schools across the county at great value for money. All children registered for the programme receive milk cartons or bottles daily, which are delivered directly to schools by their local Milkman. For more information about the programme, visit The Fresh Milk Club website, which is dedicated to schools, parents and students.

Q Mark: Quality Management System

The Q Mark is the recognised Irish symbol that guarantees consumers the highest standards of Quality and Excellence in Ireland. Thurles Fresh Milk was first awarded the Q Mark in 1998 and has retained the Q Mark through continous improvement and excellent business practices. The Q Mark is awarded to organisations that successfully complete a detailed annual audit.

Manufacturing Milk

Much of the milk produced by our dairy farmers is processed into cheese, butter and powders for the export market and makes a significant contribution to the economic life of our country.
