Delivering on taste, texture and nutrition 

In an environment where consumers are changing their snacking habits and demanding healthy, natural and tasty products, our market knowledge is invaluable.

Furthermore, our ability to deliver high-quality cereal products for breakfast, snack and nutritional applications is unmatched.

Our range of customised cereal solutions provides manufacturers of cereals, bars, snacks, confections and other products the capability to improve taste and deliver on consumers’ varied nutritional requirements. Our portfolio includes ingredients such as crisps and flakes, clusters, granolas and extruded shapes that can be developed to meet our customers’ specific requirements for both nutritional value and taste.

Crisps, flakes, grains and legumes

We’re helping customers around the world to embrace innovation in the production of cereals, bars and wholesome snacks to stay ahead of changing consumer tastes and capitalise on market trends.

Our snack bases are made with 100% whole grains, low density, all natural ingredients.

And while our crisps, flakes, puffed grains and legumes make a great snack mix ingredient, carefully developed to maximise our technologies and application expertise, we choose them for quality and so can also be developed as a standalone snack.
