FAIRR: Kerry in top five plant-based food manufacturers

Kerry, a developer of taste and nutrition solutions, has been ranked #5 on the FAIRR list of global food companies who are actively promoting and supporting plant-based foods and beverages.

Tesco and Unilever were in the top two spots and rated as ‘pioneers’, while Kerry joined Nestlé (#3) and Marks & Spencer (#4) in the ‘proactive’ section. The full FAIRR list can be viewed here: https://www.fairr.org/sustainable-proteins/.

“Consumers are expanding their consumption of plant protein, an area in which there has been constant and revolutionary innovation in recent years. To address this, Kerry recently made a significant expansion to our plant protein range for food and beverage companies,” said Juan Aguiriano, Kerry Group Head of Sustainability.

“The main challenges with plant protein can be the off-notes, gritty texture and mouthfeel in products.” The company’s R&D efforts have enabled it to understand these challenges and develop solutions.

Kerry’s new plant protein offerings are plant based and allergen-free, with organic options, and are suitable for use in a wide variety of creative food and beverage applications. Containing protein from plant sources such as pea, rice and sunflower, they address the need for organic, vegan and traditional choices while also offering good solubility, dispersibility and neutral taste.
