Construction Milestones for JJ-Muntons Manufacturing Facility

JJ-Muntons US$17.5 million state-of-art manufacturing facility construction in Chonburi, Thailand has made good progress and is on track for completion in April 2016. The new facility will have an annual production capacity of 7,000 tons per year of specialty malted food ingredients to cater to the growing premium food and beverage industry in South East Asia. This milestone venture is part of Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients (JJING) long-term strategic vision to position the food business line in a stronger position in the South East Asia region. 
"It is very exciting to see our JV production plant project materialize on the construction site. This is the moment when an idea and concept becomes reality. The construction progress is on track and project progress smooth. The contractors and other partners on site are all committed and safety is a key focus. Our small JJ-Muntons JV team of four colleagues around our GM Colin Whitehouse presented a clear view on the way forward for their various functions and I am impressed with the professional delivery and implementation plans. I would like to thank them all for sharing the project progress with all of us." Marc Deschamps, Regional Managing Director, JJING.
