Our aspirations, our goals, our contribution

Committed to a sustainable future

Kerry's success as a multinational company does not come at the expense of people or places. We care about our communities and the environment. Our objective is to ensure we do not compromise the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. We are a responsible company committed to sustainable development. We put this into practice through a comprehensive sustainability programme that incorporates initiatives such as training vanilla farmers in Madagascar, preventing under-nutrition in Zambia and committing to fair labour standards and the ethical sourcing of raw materials. We ensure that we meet the highest possible environmental standards throughout our manufacturing operations.Sustainability is not an afterthought for Kerry. As we move into our Towards 2020 strategy, it is fundamental to our growth and success. Our approach to sustainable development is based around four key pillars:
  • Environment
  • Marketplace
  • Workplace
  • Community
