Lee Strand’s innovation and leadership in the marketplace continues as they launched Ireland’s first 100% renewable 2 litre milk carton. It follows the successful launch of Lee Strand’s 100% renewable 1 litre carton in October last year. Produced by Tetra Pak, the carton is recognised as the world’s first fully renewable pack and has won many prestigious international awards. The plant-based carton and cap are also 100% recyclable.

“Lee Strand’s €2 million manufacturing investment is a major step forward in the development of truly sustainable packaging and reinforces our commitment to protecting the environment," Gearoid Linnane, CEO of Lee Strand said.

Customers are more environmentally conscious, and we are delighted to be a step ahead of the curve offering consumers a choice now when making their 2 litre milk purchases.”

To celebrate the launch, customers will be given the chance to win €1,000 if Lee Strand’s new 100% Renewable 2 litre milk carton is in your fridge!

While Killarney made it through to the last five, in the end it was Waterford City which claimed the overall title of Best Place to Live in Ireland 2021.

While the city was the unanimous choice of the judging panel it had to beat off stiff competition from Killarney and three other shortlisted locations: Clonakilty, Co Cork, Galway city and the village of Glaslough in Co Monaghan.

Among the things which impressed the judges about Waterford were its beautiful buildings, its liveability, its pedestrian friendly public space, its weather, and its easy access to the Comeragh Mountains and the Copper Coast.

The Chair of the judging panel Conor Goodman congratulated Killarney on its fine showing in the competition.

“Given the level of entries and the extremely high standard of those entries, making it into the Best 5 Places to Live in Ireland really is a wonderful achievement which I’m sure everyone in Killarney and Kerry is really proud of. We were delighted with the level of interest in the competition and would like to thank everyone who nominated a place or who engaged with us on it.”

The Irish Times Best Place to Live in Ireland contest, which is supported by Randox Health, began in June.

In total 470 locations were nominated by more than 2,400 people from all 32 counties for the title of ‘Best Place to Live in Ireland 2021’.
