"The commitment of our suppliers to continuous quality improvement at farm level is our distinct quality advantage."
Kerry Agribusiness suppliers are steeped in dairying tradition and combine the synergies of a temperate climate and low-cost, grass-based milk production to deliver a high-quality and wholesome raw food product. Milk quality control begins on our farms and our suppliers are key team members in ensuring the quality and safety of product we deliver to our customers. Our farmers have an excellent milk quality history and their commitment to milk quality was recently emphasised when Kerry Agribusiness became the first large milk purchaser in Ireland to attain 100% Sustainable Dairy Assurance Scheme (SDAS) certification across its supplier base.
SDAS is an independently audited sustainability and quality standard accredited to ISO17065 that includes all current dairy hygiene-related regulatory requirements. Having an independently audited and fully certified supplier base provides Kerry Agribusiness and our customers with a high level of confidence in the safety and integrity of our supply-chain.
