To help customers meet growing consumer demand in the poultry, seafood and alternative protein markets
Kerry Group, the leading Taste and Nutrition company, has confirmed that it is to invest $125 million in its Rome, Georgia facility to create a new world-class food manufacturing facility.
This is Kerry’s largest ever capital expenditure investment and when complete, the 360,000 sq. ft facility will be one of the most modern and efficient facilities of its kind in the world with the highest standards of food safety.
The facility will produce integrated taste and nutrition solutions to help customers meet growing consumer demand in the poultry, seafood and alternative protein markets. As part of Kerry’s sustainability agenda, the new facility will use 100% renewable electricity and will have a number of other sustainable initiatives including zero waste to landfill, bulk receiving and energy efficient equipment.
Construction will begin immediately and is expected to be completed by early 2021 which will more than double the production capacity of the existing site within the same footprint. This will significantly increase Kerry’s capacity in its largest market to meet the growing demand for holistic food solutions.
