Kerry, the world’s leading taste and nutrition company, has recently announced that it will increase 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. It will be Kerry's second manufacturing site and third facility in Indonesia.
This world class facility will be Kerry’s first greenfield investment in SEA and 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.
The design of the new facilities includes an on-site wastewater treatment plant and meets the criteria of Kerry’s Beyond the Horizon sustainability strategy achieving new standards in the consumption of energy and water with significantly lower CO2 emissions and no waste to landfill. Construction has started and the plant will be operational late 2022.
