The Gelatin Manufacturers Association of Asia Pacific (GMAP) was formed in September 1996, becoming the fourth international gelatin association. The other three associations are in Europe, North America and South America.

GMAP’s members represent the major gelatin manufacturers in the Asia Pacific region, which covers Australia, China, India, South Korea, Japan, New Zealand and Taiwan.

GMAP is an active association—independent; non-trading and a non-profit organisation.


GMAP acts as an advisory and investigative body for its members in matters relating to the manufacture and sale of gelatin including regulatory, statutory, safety, and environmental and technical issues.

GMAP represents and puts forward the consolidated views of its members on matters affecting the gelatin industry.

GMAP works worldwide in conjunction with other gelatin manufacturers’ associations to foster and promote the unimpeded flow of gelatin globally.

GMAP works worldwide to optimise gelatin manufacturing standards and product standards for the gelatin industry, its customers and gelatin consumers.
