Who We Are

Our Beginnings and Modern Day

Dansko Meeting Room

Here at Dansko, we’re a family run business with expertise in supplying top quality dairy products on a global level for more than three decades. The company was founded by Kieran O’Neill in 1985, with a value added production facility in Kilmallock, Co. Limerick, and an office in Charleville, Co. Cork.

The business is now run by four family members, including David as CEO and Suzanne as Financial Director, and operations are run from headquarters in Cork City. We have grown the business to include more than fifty employees and we pride ourselves on our loyal and trustworthy team.
