Whether starting a sports nutrition business, growing an established company or updating equipment it is important to use the most efficient and right equipment to suit your business. Before investing in that new industrial mixer, packing station or cleaning equipment, it is vital to know what return your investments are likely to make. Matcon have devised a handy savings calculator for manufacturers to download to do the sums for them.

Choosing the Most Efficient Equipment to Suit Your Business
After investing in top quality ingredients, and spending time creating recipes and blending, it is vital that sports nutrition manufacturers invest in the right equipment to handle these ingredients.
A modern manufacturing method using container-based materials transfer will help Sports Nutrition Manufacturers to optimise their profits, by eliminating waste and in choosing the right container design they will protect their high quality ingredients by ensuring that the blends do not de-mix in transit meaning the entire mix has to be re-blended or even written off.
Matcon IBCs (Intermediate Bulk Containers) come in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit batch quantities, a single blender can accommodate a range of IBCs sizes making this the most flexible system for a sports nutrition manufacturer. Because product is contained and blended in the container, there is no risk of contamination from previous recipes or from the transfer of unwanted allergens into non-allergen products.
The unique Cone Valve technology within each IBC ensures that product is dischargedunder mass-flow, ensuring that there is no de-mixing of the blend, resulting in a quality product every time.
Matcon’s IBCs are the cost saving, versatile and lean solution that sports nutrition manufacturers are looking for. Use the calculator today to help you find out how much your business could save.
