Kerry’s Sustainability Programme represents a journey of continuous improvement - an ongoing process and strategy to secure sustainable growth. 

Sustainability is at the heart of our business strategy and enshrined in our corporate mission statement.

In 2012, we launched our 1 Kerry Sustainability Programme 2012-2015, which provides a Kerry framework through which to ensure the long term development of the organisation by building competitiveness, while at the same time enhancing the quality of life and protecting our natural resources. The Programme sets out challenging short and long term targets built around four key pillars.


Making a difference
- The RAIN Project

In December 2011, Concern Worldwide and Kerry announced a pioneering initiative aimed at improving undernutrition and mortality rates in children under two years of age in the developing world. Kerry is contributing €1.25m of the overall €3.7m budget to the five year pilot project called RAIN (Realigning Agriculture to Improve Nutrition) in the Mumbwa District, Central Zambia.

The overall objective of the RAIN project is to develop a sustainable model that combines agricultural and nutrition/ health interventions to effectively prevent child and maternal under nutrition/health interventions to effectively prevent child and maternal under nutrition among rural poor communities.

In 2012, the first full year of the programme, RAIN is already changing lives of over 20,500 people - with nearly 3,500 families thriving - ensuring that crops grown and small livestock raised, together with vital nutrition and health education, address the specific nutritional needs of mothers and children during the critical 1,000 days window of opportunity. In Asia, 2016, 2500 trees were planted by 350 volunteers from Kerry Thailand and key strategic partners in the Samutprakarn province in Thailand. This eventful sustainability project is part of the Growing Green Together initiative and is the team’s ongoing efforts of leading to better – for the community and environment!
