What is sustainable nutrition?
The right to food is a fundamental human right and access to the right nutrition is central to the health and well-being of the communities around us. However, the current reality is a world where almost 690 million people go hungry, 1.9 billion people are overweight and a third of all food produced is lost or wasted. At Kerry, we have a vision for a new food future. That vision is to be our customers’ most valued partner, creating a world of sustainable nutrition.
Sustainable nutrition refers to our ability to provide positive and balanced nutrition solutions that help maintain good health and which are created in a way that does not compromise the ability of future generations to meet their nutritional needs.
Today more than 80% of our portfolio delivers balanced and positive nutrition for consumers around the world.
Our recent acquisitions of Natreon, Niacet and Biosearch life support our sustainable nutrition commitment. The products, technologies, and expertise these acquisitions bring to Kerry support our ability to respond to consumer and customer demands for increasing nutrition. Combined with our expertise in taste, they position us well for the future.
Kerry’s greatest impact however will come through working with others to provide sustainable nutrition. In addition to our product reach, the Kerry Health and Nutrition Institute is a platform for wider industry engagement on the science of nutrition.
By sharing their scientific expertise and evidence and debating key areas of nutritional interest, we are making the science of healthier food accessible to everyone.
Globally connected and locally led, Kerry works with teams on the ground to deliver authentic taste experiences to consumers across the world. Our local manufacturing facilities help us respond to consumer demands in different regions, as we innovate to create solutions in partnership with customers.
Kerry procures from-nature ingredients and apply food science and culinary skills to create nutritious products that deliver authentic and delicious taste experiences.
