Find Out More About Us


The joint venture partnership between Newly Weds Foods and George Weston Foods was established in 1983 through the creation of New Food Coatings in Sydney, Australia. After consolidating a leading position in Australia & New Zealand as a supplier of Japanese Style Breadcrumb and quality breading systems, the company turned its attention towards the developing markets of South East Asia and the need for local manufacturing capabilities in this region. This culminated in the creation of Thai Food Coatings Limited in Bangkok in 1989, followed by New Food Coatings Philippines in Manila in 2002.

To consolidate our leading market position in Asia Pacific, the company further expanded through the acquisitions of Heimann Foodmaker Group in 2008, followed by Quality Ingredients in 2009 and Witwood Food Products in 2010.

To further support this growth strategy, a representative office was established in Vietnam in 2010.

Newly Weds Foods (New Zealand) is pleased to announce that we have acquired the business of Diron Industries Ltd effective 1st December 2018.

Newly Weds Foods has evolved over the last 80 years, to be a truly international business, with 29 manufacturing facilities globally and customers in over 80 countries around the world. To reflect this truly global presence, the original names of the various business units in Asia Pacific were changed in 2012 to NEWLY WEDS FOODS. Newly Weds Foods Asia Pacific - "Inspiring new tastes"



The joint venture was established in Australia in 1983 under the name New Food Coatings (NFC). From its Sydney base, NFC pioneered the introduction of Japanese Style Bread Crumbs (JSBC) in the Australian and New Zealand markets. 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 specialty 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, flavor 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.

NEWLY WEDS FOODS (Philippines)

Following a period of market development during the 1990s using fully imported products from our manufacturing facilities in Australia and Thailand, New Food Coatings Philippines opened its manufacturing facility in Manila, in 2002.

Driving this investment in the Philippines was the growth in both the retail and fast food sectors, accompanied by the demands of NWF International customers for local supply of trusted, high quality food coatings systems.  This world class dry blending facility has GMP, HACCP, Halal accreditation and was successfully accredited to AIB in 2007 (American Institute of Baking) having the privilege of achieving the highest AIB score awarded in the Philippines to that date. 

The range of locally manufactured predusts, batters and breaders is complimented by imported premium quality Japanese Style Breadcrumbs (from Thailand) allowing NWF Philippines to offer a complete customized coating system.

Diversifying into the processed meat sector in 2006, seasonings and functional blends for meat products remain a key focus for continued range extension and growth.
