Kerry opens plant in Russia
Kerry, the global taste and nutrition company, has opened
its first plant in Russia, in the Istra district of Moscow. The
new production and warehouse complex occupies a site
covering more than 7,000 square meters and employs
over 50 people. Production begins immediately with
ingredients for the meat processing and snacks
market. At full capacity, the plant is designed to
produce 26,000 tons of products per year to meet
increased local demand for products that meet
local consumer taste and nutrition preferences.
The facility was officially opened by Minister
for Agriculture for the Moscow Region, Andrei
Razin and Edmond Scanlon Kerry Group Chief
Executive. At the opening, Minister Razin said:
"Kerry has had a presence in Russia since
2006, and I am delighted to be here to
officially open its first production facility.
For us it demonstrates the company's
commitment to our great country and
Kerry's desire to continue to develop
and grow its business in Russia. The
opening of this modern and sustainably
developed production plant will not
only contribute to the development of the food industry
in our region, but in all of Russia."
Commenting Edmond Scanlon said: "Kerry has been
in business in Russia for over 12 years, we opened our
regional development and application centre in 2014,
and the building of this state-of-the-art facility was
for us the next logical step in the development of
our business in the region. Over the years, our
business here has gone from strength to strength
and as the Russian food industry has developed
and expanded, so have we and so has our
customer base. This facility means we can now
deliver an even better service and get closer to
our customers in this part of the world, while
offering locally produced goods, using
locally sourced raw materials."
Products from this new facility will supply
Kerry customers in the Russian market
from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok, as
well as the countries of the Customs
Union and the CIS: Belarus, Kazakhstan,
Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Azerbaijan
and beyond.
