■ 23,000 employees

■ 100+ man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­i­ties

■ 800+ sci­en­tists

Its con­sumer foods di­vi­sion, Kerry Foods, is also a lead­ing con­sumer foods pro­ces­sor and sup­plier in se­lected EU mar­kets.

“Since the com­mis­sion­ing of our first dairy and in­gre­di­ents plant in Lis­towel in 1972, we have grown to be­come the in­dus­try’s lead­ing provider of tech­nol­o­gy­based in­gre­di­ents and so­lu­tions for all sec­tors of the food, bev­er­age and phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal mar­kets.

“Our in­dus­try lead­ing tech­nolo­gies are backed by the in­dus­try’s most ro­bust in-house pro­cess­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties,” the com­pany states. “We ap­ply our pro­cess­ing ex­per­tise to ad­dress man­u­fac­tur­ing chal­lenges as well as to help our cus­tomers to de­sign suc­cess­ful con­sumer prod­ucts.”

Kerry’s con­sumer foods di­vi­sion is a lead­ing man­u­fac­turer and mar­keter of added value branded and cus­tomer branded chilled foods to the UK and Ir­ish con­sumer foods mar­kets and se­lected in­ter­na­tional mar­kets. Kerry Foods’ mar­ket lead­ing brands are house­hold names in our se­lected mar­kets.
