Muntons was incorporated in 1921, nearly 100 years ago and, based in Stowmarket Suffolk in the UK. They are strategically situated in the region where the finest premium quality malting barley is grown, and ideally positioned to access the UK’s major port of Felixstowe and the major road route into the heart of England. Muntons is one of the world’s largest producers of malt extract and have two malting plants; Stowmarket, Suffolk, and Bridlington, Yorkshire. They purchase over a quarter of a million tonnes of locally grown malting barley every year, from which their malt and ingredients are made.
Whilst malt is used primarily in brewing and distilling, their ranges of malted ingredients are used in a wide variety of applications within the food and beverage industries. They export their products to over 65 countries worldwide and have offices in Singapore and Holland, a new product development facility in Thailand and run a US based company. In addition, they own and run a newly constructed manufacturing plant in Thailand specifically positioned to serve the Asian market.
