Only three of Kerry groups 14 non executive directors are considered independent.The Chairman Denis Buckley is not considered to be independent because of his length of tenure on the board according to the share watchdog. Manifest also points out that Kerry Group`s 5 member remuneration committee is not entirely independent either as is recommended by the code.
