Kerry Ingredients & Flavours has opened a new emulsifier plant in Zwijndrecht, The Netherlands. The new facility doubles the installed capacity for emulsifiers in The Netherlands and broadens the technology offering of Kerry in Europe to include distilled product types. It will also absorb volumes which are currently produced in Kerry’s emulsifier plant in Port Klang, Malaysia, freeing up capacity to support growth in the APAC market.

Rene Kamminga, vice president of lipids, emulsifiers and texturant systems, Kerry EMEA comments: “Emulsifiers are an important part of the ingredient offering of the company worldwide. Over the past five years the group has continuously invested in the capacity and capability of its emulsifier technology footprint to respond to the growing demand for cost effective and sustainable solutions.”

The Zwijndrecht plant is RSPO certified for mass balance (MB) and segregated (SG) palm oil to support customers in their sustainability programmes. The new facility also allows Kerry to competitively offer alternatives to palm, such as rape seed oil and sunflower oil based products.

With emulsifier plants in Port Klang and in Zwijndrecht, this investment positions Kerry as a world leader in the cost effective manufacture and sale of food emulsifiers.

Kerry is a world leader in food ingredients and flavours serving the food and beverage industry, and a leading supplier of added value food service brands. Headquartered in Tralee, Ireland, the Kerry Group has revenues of approximately Eur 5 billion and employs some 23,000 people throughout its manufacturing, sales and technology centres around the world. Kerry supplies over 15,000 products to customers in more than 140 countries worldwide.
