Kerry Group has officially opened its new €20 million production facility in Tumkur, India. The new, state-of-the-art 40,585 square metre facility, located 120 km from Bangalore, will serve Kerry Taste & Nutrition’s global and regional customers in the South West Asia region, with Kerry Taste and Beverage systems for the fast-growing retail and foodservice markets.

This is Kerry Group’s fourth significant investment in India and supports 150 new jobs in factory management and production, with further expansion and an additional 150 jobs planned when running at full capacity in the future.

“Our Tumkur facility will enable Kerry to offer a broader range of technologies, and more comprehensive scientific research and innovation and application expertise across Kerry’s Taste & Beverage Systems, to our customers with unrivalled speed,” commented Scott Scharinger, Kerry’s VP and General Manager, SWA.

The Tumkur facility also supports Kerry’s ambition for sustainable production. The site is equipped with energy efficient LED technology and maximises natural light to reduce energy consumption. Utilities make use of solar power, and the site has been constructed with capacity to deliver more of its future energy needs from renewable sources.

Water harvesting measures reduce water intake and the facility will deliver significant water efficiencies, with waste water treated and re-used on site to achieve zero liquid discharge. The site also operates as zero waste to landfill, with waste volumes segregated and sent for recycling and recovery of resources.

From humble beginnings in 1972, as a dairy co-operative in Listowel, Kerry Group has grown to become the world’s leading taste and nutrition company, serving the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. Its consumer foods division, Kerry Foods, is also a leading consumer foods processor and supplier in selected EU markets. With customers in over 140 countries worldwide, Kerry has grown to become a highly successful public company, employing over 25,000 people worldwide.
