Overseas offices/Marketing products across the globe
Muntons has always recognised the importance of international trade, supplying overseas markets since the formation of the company back in 1921. Today they do not only sell to global markets they have a tangible presence there as well.
The USA and Canada have long been supplied by Muntons from the UK, now they run a US based company, Muntons Inc., based just outside Chicago and maintain distribution centres across the states. Selling in the local currency and distributing from stock held in the USA means quicker, simpler ordering for US and Canadian customers, removing barriers and encouraging them to buy British.
In Asia, not only do Muntons have a sales office in Singapore to look after sales enquiries from across South East Asia, but also a New Product Development facility in Thailand strategically placed to allow us to develop products tailored for the local market.
2016 saw the official opening of our Thai based vacuum band drying plant, a US$16 million joint venture with our distribution partner Jebsen and Jessen. Here, liquid malt extracts supplied from our Stowmarket plant are mixed with local ingredients and band dried into a convenient powder form to meet the needs of local food manufacturers.
Over the past five years Muntons has supplied products to 73 countries globally and the growth trend continues as they strive to fulfil their vision: ‘To find a place for malt and malted ingredients in the lives of people – in the foods they eat and the drinks they enjoy, on every continent, in every country and every household.’
