Delivering Creative Ingredients Solutions through Innovation

Jun 21, 2023

With innovation back on the cards for many food, drink and supplement manufacturers, Hawkins Watts Australia are more equipped than ever before to deliver creative ingredients solutions.

It’s been 8 months since Hawkins Watts moved into their spacious new premises in Mulgrave, Victoria. New state-of-the art laboratories take pride of place, boasting equipment to make many an innovation technologist envious. The laboratories are equipped with cutting-edge technical equipment, including a UV-vis spectrophotometer, 3-1 combi oven, 2 stage homogenisers, water activity measurement capabilities, ultra turrax disperser and a canning machine to name a few. Along with the extensive innovation laboratory capabilities, the new premises also include a modern 300m2 warehouse.

“Our investment in the new facilities will allow us to offer more flexibility and valuable end-to-end solutions for our customers, as well as onsite warehousing for some of our Dangerous Goods and other ingredients,” says Ian Robinson, Managing Director of Hawkins Watts Australia.

“The food, beverage and supplement industries are complex and exciting, and we’re thrilled to be leading the charge in delivering innovative solutions. Our technical sales managers and application technologists love brainstorming solutions for our customers’ problems in the lab, so investing in the best technical laboratory equipment for our new premises was an easy decision.”

Hawkins Watts Australia has supplied creative ingredients solutions to the food & beverage industry for over 21 years, but with health a growing focus for many businesses, the team are now leveraging their expertise and technical capabilities to help customers bring new wellbeing-focused concepts to life. This new pathway for Hawkins Watts Australia is targeted at both functional food manufacturers as well as customers in the complementary medicines market.

“With a combined 50 years’ experience in the complementary medicines industry, the new Health & Nutrition team at Hawkins Watts Australia are well placed to help our customers in developing functional foods and complementary medicine solutions that feature consumer-compelling ingredients and claims,” says Michael Evans, Technical & Innovation Manager (Health and Nutrition).

The company’s growing portfolio of Health & Nutrition ingredients, sourced from leading global suppliers, will complement their offerings of Texture, Flavour, and Colour ingredients supported by industry expertise.

Hawkins Watts Australia has also refreshed its branding, reflecting its investment in new premises, technical and warehousing capabilities, and expansion into the Health & Nutrition space.
