Global food coatings specialist Bowman Ingredients has announced plans to invest over £2million in a dedicated UK production facility for gluten free products.

Bowman Ingredients is the market leader in gluten free coatings for the UK food industry. The category has recently seen dramatic year on year growth in the retail and foodservice sectors, with supermarkets and restaurant chains continuing to expand their gluten free product ranges.

Bowman Ingredients’ new multi-million pound facility will be dedicated to the development and manufacture of gluten free food coatings including breadcrumbs, batter mixes and pre-dusts.  One of the major uses for its gluten free range is for fillers and binders in meat products, such as burgers.  This major investment confirms the company’s commitment to serving its UK customer base and further expanding business across Europe.

Based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, Bowman Ingredients works in partnership with leading food solutions suppliers and processors in the frozen and chilled food industry.   The company produces a full range of food coating systems including breadcrumbs, batter mixes, pre-dusts and dry mix marinades for value added poultry, fish, potato and vegetable products.
