Newly Weds Foods (Australia)

Inspiring New Tastes
Business Summary
The joint venture was established in Australia in 1983 under the name New Food Coatings (NFC).
About Us

NFC provided Poultry and Seafood processors with innovative products and technical expertise to create unique, value-added foods for the growing frozen & fast food sectors. These partnerships soon established NFC as the leading coatings supplier in Australia and NZ; a well-known and trusted name to industry. After many years of representation by a distributor in New Zealand, we established New Food Coatings NZ in 1999, to take direct control over the management of the business in this key market.

JSBC remains Newly Weds Foods (Australia) signature product but today we provide a complete range of marinades, seasonings, batters and breadcrumbs to suit every possible application, accompanied by an extensive range of functional ingredients for processed meat products. To meet the changing needs of customers and market trends towards clean label and gluten free products, the company expanded its crumb manufacturing capabilities with the installation of an extruder in 2007. This investment has resulted in a range of affordable, purpose-made, clean label, gluten free and speciality products, for use as meat, bakery and pasta fillings, binders and coatings.

The company’s success has been driven by a team of technically qualified Sales Executives establishing partnerships with customers, underpinned by a local team of Food Technologists with world class technical capabilities.

The 2008 acquisition of one of Australia’s most reputable food ingredients companies - Heimann Foodmaker Group, provided the Group with expertise in manufactured meat products and created momentum to expand the company’s food service business under the “Executive Chef” banner. Followed a year later by the acquisition of Quality Ingredients, also a specialist developer and manufacturer of meat ingredients, the company now carries a diversified range of products including cures, brines, flavour boosters and sausage premixes offered through a network of Butcher Distributors and direct to major meat processors. Following this acquisition, NWF Australia was awarded the agency for WIBERG in Australia New Zealand.

To further consolidate our position as Australia’s leading Food Coatings manufacturer, the company acquired the Australian operations of UK based Witwood Food Products in 2010, bringing additional technical depth and knowledge to the business.

With representation in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, Auckland and Christchurch (NZ) and a nationwide distribution network, Newly Weds Foods (Australia) is well placed to support our customer’s needs with innovative products and technical support.
