The Sports Nutrition Specialists

Matcon works with sports nutrition manufacturers around the world. We understand the challenges of your industry:

  • Demand from customers for innovative new products which increases the number of changeovers needed during a production shift.
  • The sticky, poorly-flowing consistency of whey powder and new plant proteins which compromises some equipment.
  • The increase in allergens in new recipes which means more clean-downs and cross-contamination risks.

Despite these unique issues, we’ve designed highly-efficient systems that have helped sports nutrition manufacturers grow their businesses: they’ve met the whims and peaks of consumer demand, whilst reducing waste and improving their production efficiency.

Unique Patented Technology

What sets Matcon apart from the rest is our Cone Valve technology which was invented and developed by us.

This unique discharge device is included in all our Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) and has revolutionised powder handling. Cone Valve IBCs succeed in overcoming a range of powder handling issues from bridging and to segregation and core-flow.
