Dairy.com, a US dairy supply chain software business, has acquired Orbis MES, a Dún Laoghaire-based company that works in manufacturing execution systems (MES) for the food and beverage industry.

Orbis MES founder and chief executive John Tobin told the Irish Farmers Journal: “I’m delighted to integrate our technology with Dairy.com, who has access to roughly 60% of the US milk pool. After detailed negotiation, we decided it best to join forces and settled on a mixed cash equity deal.”
