17 Jul 2017 --- Jebsen & Jessen (SEA) has announced that its malted ingredients plant in Thailand has cleared all certification audits required to export to customers across South East Asia - opening the door for companies across the region who are keen to enter the malted drinks and foods market. 

The facility is a joint venture with Muntons PLC, the world’s leading malt producer and the US$17.5 million plant will produce 7,000 tons annually of custom malted formulations, which allows small and medium size companies to compete with industry giants. 

Following months of checks and audits, JJ-Muntons was awarded the HACCP and GMP certifications as well as the Halal Certification. The certifications allow them to supply customers across Southeast Asia and also provide malted ingredients to the fast growing Halal food sector.  

Production samples for customers are now undergoing advanced trials and early production runs. The company has seen several different flavors of Malted Chocolate Powder and Malted Milk Powder taken up in large quantities by customers keen to enter the malted drinks market. Crunchy formulations are also attractive for companies looking to develop custom recipes which provide an excellent mouthfeel when eaten dry or added to other bakery or food products.
