    Scope & contentUK-based Jas Bowman & Sons Limited is withdrawing from the milling market to concentrate on its highly successful ingredients business.

    The move will enable the family business to consolidate its 160 year heritage, and to build on its global presence in the food ingredients market. Bowmans will focus its energy, innovation and future investment in this area.

    With a heritage in milling dating back to 1857, Bowmans diversified successfully into the ingredients market in the early 1990s. The business counts major blue chip food processors amongst its customer portfolio. Bowmans has ingredients operations in South Africa, Australia and Thailand as well as the UK.

    To support the growth of its ingredients business, Bowmans made a significant investment in a blending plant in Hertfordshire, UK in 2012. This pioneered standards of consistency and product traceability in order to deliver the brand protection required by major customers. In July 2016 it will open Europe’s first dedicated production site for gluten-free coatings.
