At Glanbia Performance Nutrition, we offer our customers proven, world-class expertise every step of the way.


At Glanbia Performance Nutrition Solutions, our strength comes from bringing individual elements together to create a superior product for our clients. Our team’s success is largely due to that same formula – a combination of a proven culture of perpetual innovation across the organisation and smart, passionate people who keep that culture vibrant.

Scientific rigour is apparent in every facet of the company – no part of our business escapes the question “How can we do it better?” – and we’re fortunate that we have clients who constantly challenge us to push boundaries.
