Health & Nutrition
Everyday millions of people consume food or beverage products produced by Kerry or by our customers using our solutions. As consumers become increasingly aware of the link between diet and health, demand continues to rise for products that are natural and which consumers can trust to maintain and enhance their wellbeing. As the world’s leading Taste & Nutrition company, we are ideally placed to support our customers in the development of healthier, clean label product offerings that meet these changing consumer expectations, while continuing to deliver great taste through new and exciting flavours.
We lead the industry with our investment in Research, Development and Application and have the industry’s leading portfolio of taste and nutrition technologies. Our product development and innovation work brings together Kerry’s unrivalled global capabilities to develop market leading solutions based on local needs and taste preferences. Uniquely, almost 90% of our portfolio is naturally derived and we continue to maintain our focus on developing solutions that come from food, for food.

Kerry Health & Nutrition Institute
We work collaboratively to support Kerry’s leadership position and are engaged with external centres of expertise, through which we share and acquire new knowledge. Established in 2015, the Kerry Health and Nutrition Institute (KHNI) is a destination for expert insight into the science and policy of health, nutrition & general wellness.
KHNI was founded by Kerry to provide information on scientific research and communicate the latest developments in nutrition science and health to further highlight nutritional advancements in food and beverage product development.
Supported by a Scientific Advisory Council, the Institute promotes and develops technologies that meet consumer needs as they seek to pursue healthier diets and lifestyles and brings industry leading insight to the science and policy of health, taste, nutrition and general wellness. The Kerry Health and Nutrition Institute also allows Kerry to engage with other thought leaders in the fields of food science, academic research, government policy and the food industry.

Kerry Foods 'Better For You Programme'
Within our consumer foods division, we continue to drive positive change in the nutritional profiles of our brands without compromising on taste through the ‘Better For You’ Programme. We are committed to drive reductions in salt, sugar and calories in line with targets from both UK and Irish governments. We introduced our Richmond lower salt frozen sausages, Richmond chicken sausages with lower salt and fat, and Richmond meat-free sausages that are also lower in salt and fat content. Additionally, we have continuous improvement programmes across all our brands to drive further reductions in 2020 and 2021.
