Research and Innovation

Innovation is a cornerstone of our strategy to be the premier advanced dairy economy in the world. With this in mind, Dairy Industry Ireland has played a central role in driving the creation of the Dairy Processing Technology Centre (DPTC).

The DPTC has been established as a centre of excellence for dairy processing research and innovation. It is an industry–academic collaborative research centre, hosted by the University of Limerick, with a research agenda driven by the long-term growth opportunities for the dairy sector. The centre, led by Pádraig McPhillips from Dairy Industry Ireland is funded by Enterprise Ireland and the DII membership.
