CEO of the Carbery Group Dan MacSweeney has announced his retirement after 25 years with the Ireland-based company.

Having led the group, specialists in food ingredients, flavors and cheese, since 1992, MacSweeney will stand down at the end of this year.

“I have had the privilege of working with the Carbery Group for many years and the honor of leading the Carbery Group team since 1992,” said MacSweeney.

“Building and developing the Carbery business over that time has been an exciting challenge and I have received tremendous support in that task from the various board members I have served under, the management team I have worked with and the very committed staff who now number close to 600 and drive our business in our facilities at Ballineen, the USA, South America, the UK and South East Asia.”

“I have great confidence in the Carbery business and I have no doubt that the business will continue to grow and develop in the years ahead, continuing to deliver for the milk suppliers of West Cork in the future.”

A process to find a successor for Carbery is now underway, says the company, led by the chairman and including Carbery Board members. This appointment will be announced in due course.

“Under Dan’s leadership and direction, the Group has expanded to a point where we now have diversified operations across four continents supplying close to 40 international markets and a successful and diverse portfolio of dairy, nutrition and food ingredients businesses,” said Dermot O’Leary, Carbery Group chairman.

“Importantly for the four west Cork co-ops and our suppliers, this business success has allowed Carbery pay industry leading milk prices to our suppliers over many years.”

“On behalf of the Board I would like to wish Dan and his family every success in the future,” he added.
