Kerry Group opened a new Kerry regional development and application center in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, to serve Kerry’s global and regional customer base in the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey.
The center will work closely with Kerry’s global technology and innovation center for EMEA markets which is currently under construction in Ireland.
“The Kerry investment in the Dubai-based center is testament to the group’s determination to service customer requirements in this important developing region," said Gerry Behan, president and CEO of Kerry Ingredients & Flavours. "Here we will align our Kerry Taste and Nutritional offerings with local market trends and consumer demand, working in conjunction with our global center to drive innovation across the beverage, dairy, meat, snack, confectionery and bakery industries. This center will support our global customers who are expanding their footprint in the region, whilst bringing the benefits of our global technologies to local food and beverage producers, supporting indigenous industry development.”
