Island Dairies Limited is a family owned manufacturing company. The company produces milk, milk products, juices, drinks, and ice-cream and was incorporated in 1982 when it took over the operations of the Shaw Park Dairies in Ocho Rios, St. Ann. As the company expanded, in 1994, the factory was relocated to its present site, a 3-acre property on the outskirts of the capital town of St. Ann's Bay in Priory, St. Ann. Island Dairies Limited is the only processing plant in the parish of St. Ann which produces milk, juices, drinks, and ice cream. It has been operating for over three decades and is a member of the Jamaica Manufacturers' Association and the St. Ann Chamber of Commerce. Island Dairies markets its products under a variety of brands which it owns including Island Dairies, Sunripe, EZ Sip. Additionally, the company acquired the Cremo and Mellow brands in 2000 as a strategic move to maximize market share by separating the distribution of the Island Dairy and Cremo brands. IDL currently has three (3) depots located in the major town areas of Kingston, Montego Bay, and Mandeville.
So as to make our products more accessible to customers, there are also three (3) dairy shops in the areas of Brown's Town, Priory, and the bustling tourist center of Ocho Rios.
