Bowman Ingredients, now part of Solina Group

Solina Group completed the acquisition of Bowman Ingredients from the Bowman Family shareholders for an undisclosed sum. Bowman Ingredients is a leading supplier of coating systems to foodservice and retail food processors, with products including breadcrumbs, batters and marinades. Since 1990, Bowman Ingredients’ focus on innovation and investment has enabled the company to establish four sites in the UK including a dedicated gluten-free and allergen-controlled manufacturing plant opened in 2016.
In addition, as part of a wider expansion into mainland Europe, a manufacturing facility was opened in Wroclaw, Poland, this year. Bowman Ingredients generates revenues of £60m with 220 employees across the UK and Poland and is a partner in two successful joint ventures in South Africa and Thailand. For Solina, this acquisition represents a further step in its expansion strategy following the respective acquisitions of Canadian foodservice leader Berthelet in January 2020, and the German industry leader Hagesud, in May 2020.
Rory Bowman, founder, shareholder and CEO commented: “We are delighted to become a part of the Solina Group who clearly share the same values, passion and innovative spirit as Bowman Ingredients. Our management team will remain in place, and I am excited to be working with Solina to continue to lead Bowman Ingredients at such an exciting phase of our growth. We look forward to exposure to Solina’s new technologies and enhanced geographical reach.”
Anthony Francheterre, CEO of Solina added: “We were continuously impressed by Bowman’s expertise and the strength of the management team. Beyond being a strong cultural fit, Bowman Ingredients is well established in the convenience food and foodservice QSR’s (Quick Service Restaurants) which represent a strategic pillar for Solina’s future growth. Working in partnership, Solina and Bowman are complementary, both in terms of product portfolio and customer base."
