Thailand’s Gluten-Free Processing Boost For South East Asia

Bowman Ingredients Thailand is leading the way in the South East Asian gluten-free food industry following the completion of a significant plant upgrade.

A major refurbishment project has taken place at one of the company’s two manufacturing plants in the Kabinburi Industrial Zone, to the north east of Bangkok. The upgraded plant features a separate production area dedicated to the manufacture of gluten-free food coatings.

In addition to its traditional breadcrumb and blending capacity, Bowman Ingredients Thailand is now manufacturing crumb and dry mix coatings to a specification of less than 5ppm (parts per million) of gluten. The company supplies the rapidly expanding value-added foodservice and retail market across South East Asia.

Bowman Ingredients Thailand Managing Director Min Kamsaeng says: “We have been supplying gluten-free products since 2014 and have seen increased demand from our customers year-on-year. This plant upgrade allows us to manufacture gluten-free products efficiently, as we continue to meet our customers’ growing expectations in terms of fast response, quantity and quality.”

Bowman Ingredients Thailand was launched in 2014 following a joint venture between a leading Thai food coatings firm and UK-based Bowman Ingredients, a major player in the global food processing industry. The Thai company supplies breadcrumbs, batter mixes and dry mix marinades for the fast growing value-added food market across South East Asia, including Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Singapore.

Bowman Ingredients works in partnership with food processors around the globe to develop innovative products for major retailers and quick service restaurant chains worldwide. The company produces a full range of coating systems for frozen and chilled food, including value-added poultry, fish, potato and vegetable products.

With its headquarters and production facilities in the UK, the company also has manufacturing sites in South Africa, Australia and Thailand. For more information on Bowman Ingredients Thailand, please email: info@bowmanthai.com
