Kerry Ingredients Ltd,
Charleville, Co.Cork

Established in 1972, Kerry has progressed from its modest beginnings in the south west of Ireland into a leading player in the global food industry.

Commencing from a green field site in Listowel, Co. Kerry, Ireland over 40 years ago, Kerry Group has realised sustained profitable growth with current annualised sales of approximately €6.1billion.

In supplying a diverse range of brands and private label food products to major markets across the UK and Ireland, Kerry structure their business into three main market segments, Dairy, Meat and Meal Solutions.

Kerry Ingredients Charleville went live in March 2014 with an Emydex Recipe Control system that is used to monitor, control and provide real-time Traceability reporting on the dispensing of ingredients used to produce Infant formula destined for export markets.

"Following the successful implementation of Emydex’s Recipe System in the Cannery factory in Kerry Flavours & Ingredients last year, work is about to commence on a second Recipe system for a separate Powder Area of the factory. The system will monitor, control and provide real-time Traceability reporting on the dispensing of ingredients used to produce Infant formula destined for export markets."
