Global ingredients supplier Newly Weds Foods has opened a new facility in the UK that focuses on gluten-free.

Located at its current site in Banbury, Oxfordshire, the new 2,700m2​ facility has been designed to produce gluten-free breadcrumbs from tin-baked loaves and also includes a blending line for the manufacture of gluten-free coating systems.

The Banbury site currently has a workforce of 210, although this has been increased by six people with the introduction of the expanded facility.

Newly Weds has three facilities in the UK, as well as sites in the US, China, Australia, Thailand, the Philippines and New Zealand. The business has 17 sites in the US, with customers in 80 countries.

John Butcher, Newly Weds Foods Banbury plant manager, said: “This dedicated factory is ... designed to produce gluten-free productsunlike any others currently in the market. We are baking individual tinned loaves of gluten-free bread.

​This facility will enable us to supply a range of gluten-free crumb, as well as complementary coating system components to meet our customers’ processing needs.”

Rob Macdonald, Newly Weds Foods commercial director, added: “Newly Weds strives to be on the leading edge of developments and innovations in breadcrumb manufacture. Our Corby location is Europe’s only production site for Japanese-style breadcrumb and the Banbury plant is the only source of breadcrumb made from real loaves of bread.

​This strong baking heritage and experience certainly shaped our thinking as we enter into the gluten-free market with a unique breadcrumb offering.”
