Kerry Taste & Nutrition Boosts Coating Business With Major Investment in German Manufacturing Site

As part of Kerry Taste & Nutrition’s ambition to become the leading supplier of coating solutions in Europe, Kerry has announced a significant investment in its Wittstock breadcrumb manufacturing site, located in north-western Brandenburg, Heiligengrabe in Germany. The investment includes the addition of a new crumb baking line and a warehouse extension, which will double the output volume to 48,000 tons per year.

This will enable a faster and more efficient replenishment lead time for our customers in a demanding market. The site will also be increasing its employee base by 13% to support its new capacity levels.

Kerry has been monitoring the European coatings market closely and anticipates growing demand for a range of great-tasting and better-for-you solutions, including VLOG (non-GMO) and gluten free crumb. Kerry’s coating capability spans across categories from meal centres to appetisers and across proteins from poultry and seafood, to pork and plant protein. Understanding regional flavour and format preferences is a key initiative which means that along with the increased capacity, the Wittstock site will allow Kerry to simultaneously deliver product innovation and enable high-quality, production at scale, for its customers to suit their respective markets.

“Kerry’s investment in this key manufacturing site demonstrates our commitment to service customers with growing coatings needs,” says Philip O’Connor, Meat Business President at Kerry Taste & Nutrition. “We work closely with customers to ensure their consumers’ taste and nutrition expectations continue to be exceeded and that processing volumes and timelines can be adhered to efficiently. With our continuing efforts to expand our capabilities, combined with our 40+ years of taste expertise, we are confident in our ability to meet the increasing demand for innovative coating solutions in the region.”
