Diversity & Inclusion

As a global organisation, we understand that Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging (DIB) are essential elements for a successful workplace and since the introduction of our Global Diversity Programme in 2016, we have continued to embrace these principles for innovation and growth through attracting the best talent to our business, growing our own people and capabilities and building more agile working practices. 

Our Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Policy reinforces our focus on these areas across all Group activities, supported by our global taskforce established during 2018 to help us gain a better understanding of the issues facing the organisation and the ways in which we can take positive action on this agenda. 

In addition, Kerry has taken up membership of the Irish Chapter of the 30% club and is represented on the advisory group of an Industry led Agri-food D&I Forum, led by Bord Bia and aligned with the 30% club. As part of these partnerships, Kerry has contributed to an industry wide review on gender balance, results of which were published in an external report entitled ‘Diversity & Inclusion in the Irish Food & Drinks Sector: Women in Business’ in September 2018.  This has helped to inform our continued approach to diversity, inclusion and belonging across Kerry as well as beginning to set the standards for all Irish based companies in our sector.

Other steps taken have included improved internal reporting to monitor progress of diversity and inclusion initiatives and commissioning expert research, to engage all our people in shaping further development of our wider diversity, inclusion and belonging agenda within Kerry for 2019.

Gender & Pay

At Kerry, we believe in paying people fairly for the job that they do and for their personal contribution to the success of the organisation, regardless of their gender. We are confident that male and female colleagues are paid equally for equivalent jobs.


In accordance with UK legislation, Kerry has published its first reports on ‘Gender Pay Gap’ for our UK employee population. Gender pay gap looks at the difference in average female earnings compared to average male earnings regardless of role.


Kerry has two business entities in the UK which are subject to reporting. These reports on Gender Pay can be found below.
