Kerry Leading to Better

We are Kerry. Forty years of experience, 23,000 staff embedded in six continents – all with the same goal: to delight and nourish consumers across the globe with products people enjoy and feel better about.

We are Kerry. We are evolving.

Based on changing consumer needs, our renewed focus for the future is Taste and Nutrition. This simply means that we create more authentic and delicious taste experiences with the vital feel-good factor provided by nutritional science. And we want you to come along with us on the journey as we evolve.

We are Kerry. Leading to Better.

Kerry is a company rich in heritage and resources

Over the past four decades, our focus on changing lifestyles, the globalisation of food tastes and ever-evolving consumer needs has brought us to a market-leading global position.

Today we are firmly established as a world leader in the food and drink industry – with operations in 100 sites across six continents.

We have always focused on the dynamics of the food and beverage markets, lifestyle changes and the internationalisation of food tastes. But it was during our modest beginnings as a dairy cooperative in Ireland that we developed our unwavering commitment to producing real and wholesome ingredients.

As we’ve grown, we have remained steadfastly committed to this early ethos. We always have and always will pride ourselves on delivering delicious, authentic foods and beverages of the highest quality.

We Believe in Nutrition

We believe in
Taste & Nutrition

We make better tasting and more authentic products that meet vital nutritional needs for people in all parts of the world and at all stages of life.

We understand that taste is influenced by many factors: cultures, life stages, memories, environment and more. Consumers are demanding authentic tastes, textures and aromas in every product they purchase. Our leading-edge research in markets and consumer behaviour and our unparalleled expertise in the science of taste allow us to maximise flavour in everything we do.

We also know that nutrition is a core driver for the global food and beverage industry. In a world where people expect not only to live longer, but also to live better, consumers are paying more attention to the ingredients in their food and its nutritional value. Our global reach, physical infrastructure and cutting-edge technology enable us to expertly assist our customers in meeting the challenges that this poses.

Leading to Better taste, health and wellbeing.
