A Message from our CEO During COVID-19

Friday 27 March, 2020

In this time of global crisis, countries across the world are facing new challenges on a daily and even hourly basis. Yet, even in this uncertain landscape, one thing that will always remain consistent is our need for a safe and continuous food supply.

At Kerry, we’re doing everything we can to make sure we help meet that need and are working with our customers to ensure the continuous flow of food to tables everywhere.

In this time of global crisis, countries across the world are facing new challenges on a daily and even hourly basis. Yet, even in this uncertain landscape, one thing that will always remain consistent is our need for a safe and continuous food supply. At Kerry, we’re doing everything we can to make sure we help meet that need and are working with our customers to ensure the continuous flow of food to tables everywhere.

Thousands of Kerry employees continue to work at the front line of food production in our facilities around the world–their contribution to keeping food in millions of homes is something we are extremely proud of. In all of our actions, the safety of our people is paramount, as we do our very best to support our customers and our communities.

In addition to continuing to produce food and beverages, we also want to support the communities that we work and live in as they respond to the challenges that have been posed by COVID-19. I am delighted to have launched our new MyCommunity programme which builds on what so many of our colleagues are already doing by pledging further financial, material and also physical support to our local communities across the world.

Our purpose to Inspire Food and Nourish Life continues to unite and guide us on this journey. Now, more than ever, we are rallying together across the globe to stay true to that cause. A challenging road lies ahead for all of us, but we are confident that as we continue to work closely with our customers we will navigate these difficult times together to provide nutritious solutions for consumers globally.

Yours sincerely,
Edmond Scanlon
Kerry Group CEO
