George Weston Foods has merged its Weston Milling business with the Australian and New Zealand operations of bakery ingredients company AB Mauri.

The new entity will be named MAURI anz, and will bring a fully integrated bakery ingredients business with product, research, innovation, technology, production and distribution capabilities.

AB Mauri and George Weston Foods are part of of Associated British Foods.

The new entity will be a division of GWF and an affiliate of the global AB Mauri business.

“This is an exciting stage in our growth.  Building an integrated bakery ingredients business in Australia has been a long-term objective as a means to offer something very unique and compelling in the category, for the baker - big and small,” Andrew Reeves, chief executive of George Weston Foods said.

“The merger affords us the opportunity to help drive best practice, leverage the combined scale, access global expertise and in turn build the local category.”
