History & Ornua Group

Ornua Nutrition Ingredients (formerly Adams Food Ingredients) has a long and unrivalled experience in blending and supply of dairy based powders having been in business for over 40 years.  


We recently changed our name to highlight our relationship with our parent company Ornua – the leading agri-food commercial co-operative headquartered in Dublin.  


Adopting the Ornua name reinforces our future growth strategy and continued investment in the business.


Ornua – The Home of Irish Dairy, is an agri-food commercial co-operative which markets and sells dairy products on behalf of its members, Ireland’s dairy processors and in turn the Irish dairy farmer.


The business is structured across two core platforms; Ornua Foods and Ornua Ingredients.


Ornua has been present in the UK for over 50 years and today is one of the leading suppliers of dairy products in the UK
