In the animal nutrition sector, Matcon have experience of nutrition, medicinal and agricultural applications, handling a range of ingredients including grains, proteins, vitamin and mineral nutrient premixes, and extruded products.
IBC tumble blending is proven to increase the range and quality of pre-mixes that our customers manufacturing dry pet foods can offer, whilst retaining their high-quality assurance standards. As batch ingredients are fully contained within the IBC, there is no need to clean down the Blender, significantly reducing downtimes for product changeovers and any risk of cross-contamination is also removed.
A well designed, agile, Lean system means our customers easily switch recipes in response to demand.
Animal Nutrition manufacturers that make the move to IBC-based production, have the ability to run smaller, tailored, flexible batch sizes in parallel, reducing loading, cleaning and discharge times. And the great thing with an agile system like this, is that new bins of varying sizes can be added at any time, so scaling to meet market demands doesn’t mean costly factory extensions or refits.
