A maltings firm has received a perfect score for an audit of its Stowmarket plant.

Muntons received the 100 per cent pass from Campden BRI which carried out audits of areas such as quality management, control of suppliers, product recall procedures and complaint handling.

The audit was requested by the Independent Breweries Production Group.

Dr Nigel Davies, manufacturing and sustainability director for Muntons, said: “It’s vitally important to us that our systems are seen to add value to our customers. It assures us we’re aligned with what industry requires of a modern food manufacturing company.”

Muntons plc is one of the top five maltings companies in the country and the largest malted ingredients manufacturer in Europe.

The company, which has been in business for more than 90 years, employs almost 300 staff across sites in Stowmarket and Bridlington.
