Kerry Foods – Why Work For Us?


We’re a food business. But there’s a lot more to us than just food.

Our characterful, household-favourite brands, which include Cheestrings, Fridge Raiders, Richmond Sausages, Denny and Dairygold, are eaten by millions of people every day. Our products can be found in kitchens, supermarkets and chiller cabinets across the UK and Ireland. We’re growing in Europe too.

We’re also tireless innovators. Across our meat, dairy and meal solutions divisions, we’re always looking for new ways to reach and delight millions. Our consumers trust us to deliver great taste, whether it’s a family-favourite sausage, an authentic curry, a healthy vegetable pot or a dairy-free spread. Our customers us to deliver the same, along with amazing levels of service, quality and reliability. We make sure never let any of them down.

All of this is made possible by our thousands of brilliant and ambitious people. They do so much more than just make our food. They cook up new ideas. They take the leaps that take us forward. And they take a lot of pride in what they do.

All this, combined with our amazing heritage and uniquely values-driven culture, make us one of the most energetic businesses in one of the fastest-moving industries out there. We’re always on the lookout for the next big thing. Come and find it with us.

    I have been working at Kerry Foods full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lovely facility to work in. People very friendly and helpful. Really good atmosphere

    Cons

    Hard to get access to applications which can delay getting things done. It would have been nice to have an induction where you are shown how to raise tickets, log on to applications etc.

    Advice to Management

    No advice.
