at heart

Bowman Ingredients has made sustainability a priority, putting it at the heart of our organisation.


Sustainability is a priority

Not just because our customers demand it, or because our customers’ customers demand it, but because it’s the right thing to do. We only have one planet and it is our responsibility as a major player in the global food industry to tread lightly upon it. Our sustainability vision aligns perfectly with Solina’s, and it’s cemented into commitments that run through every aspect of our business.
