Kerry to drive food innovation with Queensland HQ and hub

Kerry will develop a purpose-built food technology and innovation centre of excellence in Queensland, Australia.

The facility will act as the new headquarters for Kerry in Australia and New Zealand while its existing facility in Sydney will retain a specialist research and development applications hub.

With end-to-end capabilities including pilot plants, laboratories and tasting facilities, the new Kerry Australia and New Zealand Development and Application Centre in Brisbane will bring end-to-end food innovation cycle under one roof reducing time to market for new product development and increasing Kerry’s capacity to drive food innovation in the region.

Complementing the new facility is the Kerry Australia and New Zealand Commercial Connect Centre in Sydney, which will retain a specialist RD&A applications hub.

“The new facility aligns with Kerry’s globally-recognised innovation strategy focused on value creation for the consumer, as it reflects changing industry needs and unlocks sector growth opportunities in Australia and New Zealand,” said Christine Giuliano, General Manager, Kerry Australia and New Zealand.

“More importantly, it will bring the benefits of our global technologies to local food and beverage producers – supporting regional industry development.

“Our team at the new centre will be able to leverage Kerry’s R&D network around the world, as well as global insights, market knowledge, and culinary and applications expertise to customise solutions that ultimately deliver exciting products that resonate with the local market.”
