Preparing for a phone interview with managing director of Glenisk, Vincent Cleary, I was expecting a quick, 15-minute conversation. We’d discuss how Glenisk are faring during COVID-19, and he would give a run down on their upcoming charitable campaign. “There’s not enough of a story there for print,” I thought to myself. “But it will make a great online article.”

I was wrong. With topics ranging from goat rearing to digital marketing and seemingly everything in between, I came away from the hour-long interview with a renewed vigour for Irish food and an appreciation for how Vincent and several of his 13 siblings have built an Irish yoghurt empire from the ground up.
