Taste and nutrition solutions firm Kerry Group is committing €30 million, or about $36 million, to open a new manufacturing facility in Karawang, Indonesia to support its Taste business in the South East Asia (SEA) region, a recent company release announced.

The new greenfield facility will be the company’s biggest investment in SEA to date and its third facility in the country. Kerry plans to build a flavor manufacturing site at the Karawang location, as well as a sampling hub and a R&D pilot plant.

“As part of its goal to create a world of sustainable nutrition, Kerry is committed to meeting the growing demand from customers in Indonesia and South East Asia,” Antoine Nourrain, general manager, Taste, APMEA for Kerry, said in a statement. “Our focus is on delivering world class products to our customers and consumers.

A number of sustainability-oriented features will be included in the new facility, including an on-site wastewater treatment plant and a no-waste-to-landfill design.

“The construction of this world-class manufacturing site demonstrates our commitment to our customers in Indonesia and the South East Asia region. This new facility will strengthen our competitiveness as we work with customers to deliver our Taste portfolio of solutions and bring excellent and authentic testing products to market,” said John Savage, Kerry’s CEO of Global Taste, in the release.

Work on the plant is underway and is slated to commence operations in late 2022.
