Long established agri-business J. Grennan & Sons has secured Irish brand Lir Agri for their six stores across Offaly and Westmeath.

The Rath based business has been a part of Irish farming for generations and in agri-trading since 1878. Lir Agri, which develop and manufacture a range of premium bio-security solutions for the dairy industry, will be sold exclusively in their six stores across the midlands.

John Grennan, managing director of J. Grennan & Sons said, “As a family owned Irish business J. Grennan & Sons are delighted to be supporting an Irish brand. Lir Agri products will be sold in all of our stores and we expect them to sell very well.”

J. Grennan & Sons, which employs up to 100 people during their peak months, is an exceptional example of what an Irish agricultural business can achieve. As a progressive Irish business, Lir Agri is on track to emulate this success. The majority of dairy hygiene products used on Irish farms today are imported. Lir Agri is changing this by producing the highest quality bio-security solutions for farms in their plant in Granard, Co. Longford. The state of the art research and development facility creates superior products for the expanding Irish dairy sector.

Lir Agri Managing Director, Micheál Savage said, “Lir Agri is delighted to be exclusively stocking J. Grennan & Sons stores. J. Grennan & Sons are a highly reputable agri-business and their customers will be very satisfied with our bio-security solutions. We have a stringent development process that results in dairy hygiene products of exceptional quality. Farmers using Lir Agri are reporting improvements in bacterial counts. That’s what’s important to us – creating products that farmers can trust”
