Convenience

Our baristas, mixologists, technicians and food scientists are working on new ways to deliver the next wave of coffee and tea innovations.

We can support you as you develop customized coffee pods, ready-to-drink formats, or innovative packaging as well as build customized solutions for foodservice outlets.

There are many outstanding opportunities for manufacturers and foodservice operators to capitalize on the desire for convenience in the coffee and tea markets. Kerry has the expertise and technology to help you do it.

Driving growth

Single serve SKUs are currently driving growth in the coffee and traditional tea/bagged tea market. While single-cup packaging waste and low usage occasions for ready-to-drink coffee pose challenges for manufacturers, there are many opportunities for improvement and innovation.

More than 20% of households in the US own a pod machine
  • Everyday luxury: Single pod machines can meet the taste of each person in the family
  • Convenience: A continuing demand for ‘on the go’ products is driving the market for RTD coffee and tea
  • Premium and craft brews: A demand for better quality in single-cup form
 

Health and wellness

It is important for coffee and tea manufacturers to stay relevant to customers as ‘less is more’ – moving toward ‘free-from’ and ‘better-for-you’ products and simple ingredient declarations. And, as consumers seek healthier options, we can help you reduce added sugar, while maintaining exceptional mouthfeel and flavor in the coffee and tea space. 

We offer a variety of functional ingredients such as Wellmune®, that can help you capitalize on consumer interest in getting more from their coffee and tea experience.

We can help you replace artificial flavors with more natural substitutes.

 

Customization

The global marketplace is influencing consumers to expect customized taste experiences. Our deep knowledge of the coffee and tea marketplace and flavor trends will help you meet the expectations of your target consumers through our sensory science, applications know-how and technology portfolio including taste modulations technology, flavors, creamers and syrups and sauces.

Our coffee extracts are derived from specialty grade, 100% Arabica beans, then we roast, grind, extract, filter and package entirely in our state-of-the-art facility in the U.S. – capturing the distinctive flavor and aroma that provides the signature taste of any coffee.

 

Innovation

The tea and coffee marketplace continues to evolve rapidly as curious consumers crave new, exciting indulgent choices that also meet their demands in terms of cost, sustainability and personalization - more than half of consumers would like to try a coffee product that offers additional benefits such as fiber, protein or natural energy.

Kerry collects consumer insight on a global and local scale using specialized tools. We use this information to develop solutions that are shaping the future of coffee and tea consumption. The result is the largest, most innovative portfolio of taste and nutrition systems, nutritional actives, and functional solutions in the beverage industry.
