The company’s move comes following last year’s news that Norwegian parliamentarians decided to cut export subsidies for the famous Norwegian cheese by 2019.

TINE’s new Jarlsberg Cheese production facility is to be built alongside Dairygold’s existing Speciality Cheese facility in Mogeely, Co Cork.

Dairygold, which is Ireland’s largest farmer-owned dairy business, has produced Jarlsberg on behalf of TINE at its own manufacturing facility since 2013.  

The Irish farmers’ cooperative processes some 960 million litres (18% of the Irish Milk pool) from its 3,000 milk suppliers annually.

“We have had a long and successful relationship with Dairygold and when TINE needed to develop EU production facilities for our Jarlsberg® exports, Mogeely was an obvious choice for that investment,” says TINE chairman Trond Reierstad in a statement, Monday.

Norwegian Minister of Agriculture and Food, Jon Georg Dale, visited the site of TINE’s proposed new cheese production facility in Mogeely last week at the invitation of TINE.

Michael Creed, Irish Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, joined his Norwegian counterpart there.

Calling the move “a very exciting development”, he declares that it demonstrates how world-class brands and dairy processors can work together to create value and export opportunities for both businesses and both countries.

Dairygold Chairman James Lynch also welcomes TINE’s decision.

“Jarlsberg® is a world-class cheese and we look forward to assisting TINE in growing its international sales. I’m confident that the proposed new Jarlsberg® facility at Mogeely is just the beginning of the next phase of a long and fruitful partnership between two farmer-owned businesses,” he comments.

The new Ireland-located facility will manufacture the famous Norwegian cheese for export to Europe, the US, and Australia.

Production is scheduled to begin in 2019, with an expected output of 14,000 tonnes of cheese, Norway publication Nationen reports.

According to TINE, Jarlsberg for the Norwegian market will continue to be manufactured in Norway.

Certain cheeses made abroad are subject to increased import duties in the Scandinavian country.
