Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients, the ingredients arm of Jebsen & Jessen Southeast Asia, started production at its first manufacturing facility, selling premium malted products to Southeast Asian customers.

Housing one of the world’s largest vacuum driers, the US$17.5 million plant is a joint venture with malt producer Muntons, and will produce 7,000 tonnes of specialty malted food ingredients for the fast growing Southeast Asia premium food and beverage industry. It includes both straight and compounded products using vacuum band dried technology, enabling customers to make compounded formulations of malt, sugar, cocoa and milk powder.

Marc Deschamps, regional managing director and CEO of Jebsen and Jessen Ingredients said, “The booming middle class of Southeast Asia has increased demand for food, consumer and life science products. Malted products in particular are growing in popularity and our customers increasingly need innovative product launches, faster delivery, better technical and product support, and customised formulation in small batches for testing and development. This manufacturing facility helps us meet the needs of the ASEAN malted food sector, and will hopefully mark the first of many other production capabilities within our ingredients division.”
