Kerry, a specialized taste and nutrition ingredient company that works with private brands, has appointed a new VP of Supplements in North America.

Bruce Brown will lead Kerry’s supplement business, overseeing the creation of ingredients, proteins, enzymes and taste technologies. Brown joined Kerry following the company’s acquisition of Natreon in March 2022, and brings more than 20 years of supplement and public health experience to the company.

As president of Natreon, Brown oversaw the company’s strategic direction and expanded the reach of the company’s clinically studied and patented botanical ingredients into the dietary supplement, food and beverage, and animal nutrition spaces. He holds an MPH degree in International Health from Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health and MA in International Relations from Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS).

“We are delighted to welcome Bruce to the Kerry team,” said Gerry Behan, global president and CEO of Taste and Nutrition at Wisconsin-based Kerry. “Bruce has a huge amount of expertise across supplements and public health, coupled with extensive experience in driving innovation with customers and in-depth knowledge of the industry. His appointment is an important step towards Kerry’s broader vision of reaching two billion consumers globally with sustainable nutrition solutions by 2030, extending our reach further into the supplements space to create deeper and more lasting partnerships with supplement brands in North America and around the world.”
