The right to food is a fundamental human right and access to good nutrition is central to the health and wellbeing of the communities around us. According to the World Health Organisation, good nutrition is required to meet 12 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, the current reality is a world where almost 690 million people go hungry, 1.9 billion people are overweight and a third of all food produced is lost or wasted.
Over the last decade, we have been dedicated to evolving our product portfolio and as the leader in Taste & Nutrition, our solutions deliver better nutrition for consumers around the world. Using the externally validated UK Nutrient profiling model and independent expert recommendations, we have developed a framework that allows us to assess our entire product portfolio. Under this approach, over 80% of our solutions are classified as providing balanced and positive nutrition.
Consumers also want to understand the environmental impact of their food choices and 73% of consumers say they would change their consumption habits to reduce their impact on the environment.
We have committed to creating our products with less impact on the environment and by 2030, Kerry will reach over two billion people with sustainable nutrition solutions. We understand that innovation is at the core of a more sustainable food future and we excel in co-creating sustainable solutions with our customers.
