Kerry to build second Indonesia manufacturing facility

Kerry is increasing its footprint in South East Asia (SEA) by building a second manufacturing facility in Karawang, Indonesia.

The new state-of-the-art facility, which represents Kerry’s largest ever capital investment in SEA, will significantly expand Kerry’s Taste offering in the region and further support customers in the fast-growing markets of SEA.

Kerry’s second manufacturing site and third facility in Indonesia will encompass a flavour manufacturing site along with a sampling hub and a research and development pilot plant.

A wide range of flavour technologies will be manufactured in Karawang, allowing this new site to support Kerry’s fast-growing taste business and its food and beverages systems across all food categories, including Beverage and Snacks which is among the fastest growing end use markets for Kerry.

“This new facility will strengthen our competitiveness as we work with customers to deliver our Taste portfolio of solutions and bring excellent and authentic tasting products to market,” said John Savage, CEO Global Taste at Kerry.

“The South East Asian taste market is valued at circa €900 million and growing in strong single digits with a huge opportunity for further development and innovation.”
