Positive outlook for Irish dairy exports
Dairy remains the largest sector within Irish food and drink exports, with over 1.7 million tonnes of product shipped to over 130 markets worldwide each year.
In 2022 Irish dairy exports increased by 33% reaching a record value of €6.8 billion according to Bord Bia.
The European Union remains Ireland’s largest destination accounting for 34% of all value exports.
Exports of butter increased by 26% last year to a record value of €1.32 billion, with the UK and Ireland being one of the main exporters.
Cheese exports reached €1.3 billion, up 25% from 2021, with strong trade to France, the Netherlands and Germany due to lower local supply. Irish cheddar exports to Spain and Belgium increased by 40% and 70% also.
Irish dairy exporters are comfortable post-Brexit using a responsive mix of direct ferry and UK landbridge routes with an expectation that transport providers provide integrated customs clearance solutions to dynamically ensure exports move cross-border without delays.
