The new Centre will work closely with the group’s Global Technology & Innovation Centre for EMEA markets which is currently under construction in Ireland.”

Stan McCarthy, chief executive of Kerry Group.

We will align our Kerry Taste and Nutritional offerings with local market trends and consumer demand to drive innovation across industry growth categories including the meat, sauce, prepared foods, snack, bakery, confectionery and beverage sectors”. He adds “Kerry’s Durban Centre will support our global customers who are expanding their regional footprint, whilst bringing the benefits of the group’s leading technology portfolio to local food and beverage producers.”
