Glanbia issue new 'call and collect' measures in a bid to combat Covid-19

Glanbia Ireland’s network of Agribusiness branches is now switching to a ‘call and collect’ system to protect vital services in the farming community.

As part of the national effort to contain the coronavirus, from 9am on Monday, March 23 until further notice, customers will be asked to place their orders from branches in advance by phone.

“This decision is a preventative step to help safeguard our dedicated staff, vital services and to continue providing essential products to our customers. We are asking our farmer community and loyal customers to work with us as we implement this new operating model,” said Glanbia Ireland’s Chief Agribusiness Growth Officer, Sean Molloy.

This call and collect measure applies to orders that would normally have been made in person by customers calling to Glanbia branches.

However, customers should please use their usual ordering channels over the phone and our Customer Services Centre (CSC) service via 1890 321 321 or online via
