Our network of global and regional innovation and development centres brings together the best minds in the industry to help you develop products that taste great and that consumers feel good about.
Our research, development and applications experts can work with you through all stages of product development – from ideation to development and testing, recipe fine tuning, scale up and manufacturing. We’ll help you take a winning concept and turn it into a winning, commercially viable product that can be delivered quickly to market.
Our vision at Kerry and within R&D is to be the leader in taste and nutrition for the global food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries – creating sustainable value for our customers, employees, environment, community and shareholders.
When you partner with Kerry, you are working with the world’s premier research, development and applications team. Excellence in taste and nutrition innovation is at the heart of our mission.
Understanding the marketplace and consumers and being able to develop great products in a kitchen or laboratory are key contributors to success, but the fact remains that you must be able to deliver effectively in a production environment to truly be successful.
Kerry’s innovation model begins with a keen understanding of global market trends and a sound scientific foundation. Then, using the industry’s largest portfolio of taste and nutrition systems, we help our customers develop great products that meet consumers’ expectations for both taste and nutrition.
But, it’s our ability to deliver efficiently and at scale that continues to set us apart and make us a preferred partner to so many brands – big and small.
Kerry has a comprehensive range of processing capabilities – mimicking both our own production environments as well as those of our customers.
That means, if you can design it, we can make it a reality. Our capabilities and processes are vast. Here is just a sampling of the areas where we are proficient.
