Established in the UK in 1992, Bowman Ingredients specialises in the production of coating systems for customers in the global food processing industry.

Through our strong customer focus and dedication to product innovation, we have grown to become one of the UK’s leading food coatings companies and a major player worldwide.

We work with processing firms and food solutions suppliers to develop value-added products for retail and foodservice markets.

We support many of the world’s leading food brands though our international network of manufacturing sites and commitment to new product development.

The original ‘Bowmans’ company was established in 1857 as a family-run milling business. The CEO of the company today is Rory Bowman, the great-great-grandson of the founder.

Our UK headquarters in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, houses our Ingredients and Milling divisions. In South Africa, Australia and Thailand our manufacturing sites also feature production facilities for food coatings and flour.

Our expertise in cereal technology allows us to maintain complete control of the manufacturing process. This enables us to guarantee the highest level of product quality and consistency in the development of exclusive flours and bespoke coating products for our customers.
