Taste and nutrition company Kerry Group has unveiled plans to reach 2 billion people every day with sustainable nutrition solutions by 2030.

The goal was announced as part of the Group’s new sustainability strategy, Beyond the Horizon. It includes sustainability targets within the areas of nutrition and health, emissions, energy, circular economy, raw materials, and social impact.

The project aims to reach over two billion people with sustainable nutrition solutions by 2030, as well as reducing operational emissions and emission intensity of the supply chain by over 30% in the same time. This is part of Kerry’s long-standing goal of becoming net-zero by 2050.

The company said it aims to reach these targets by enhancing and expanding its solutions portfolio across the nutrition sector.

Commenting on the announcement, Edmond Scanlon, chief executive officer of Kerry Group, said: “The food industry plays a crucial role in society and has long recognised the need to transform to meet conflicting challenges such as obesity, malnutrition and food waste, all while facing a growing pressure on resources. Supplying the right nutrition, in the right quantities, in the right way, is how we will collectively solve this challenge.

“Kerry’s vision is to become our customers’ most valued partner, creating a world of sustainable nutrition. This vision is underpinned by our industry-leading capabilities and global scale which is leading to significant opportunities across the globe.

“In recent times we have seen a step change in customer innovation, and we will continue to play a leading role in responding to the global nutritional and environmental challenges and changing consumer demand by co-creating with our customers right across the nutrition spectrum over the coming decade. Beyond the Horizon, our 2030 sustainability strategy, will help consumers eat better, improve our local communities and reduce the environmental impact, while also meeting both Kerry’s and our customers’ goals.”
