Materials Handling Equipment
for Bakery Manufacturers

How can you avoid Allergen cross-contamination? Lengthy clean-down protocols reduce production effectiveness.

Your Challenges

Increasing product variety is difficult to handle on traditional in-line fixed mixer systems due to the need for full clean-down at each recipe change.

Smaller order sizes & shorter lead times can be hard to achieve if the production schedule isn’t flexible.

New product lines increasingly contain allergens or are gluten-free which places more demand on hygiene standards.

Our Experience

We have installed an IBC system for the high variety low volume lines alongside high runner product lines for a leading bakery manufacturer.

Our Blender Intensifier enables single stage mixing within the IBC for a faster blend cycle.


How we can help

We specialise in supplying efficient production systems that give a good ROI on high variety production schedules & enable make to order not to campaign.

In-bin IBC blending eliminates cleaning down-time on recipe changeovers at the mixing stage. 

Simply switch IBCs in & out without worrying about allergen cross-contamination.

Our Approach

We can integrate the IBC system with existing equipment to optimise production flow and create a system that fully meets your needs.

The unique Cone Valve inside each IBC helps to promote the flow of the more sticky, cohesive mixes.

Bakery Equipment

The Matcon system is based on using Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) to transport the powders used Bakery products, such as cakes, pies, cookies and biscuits, crackers and snacks, between manufacturing steps.

Because everything is contained within the IBC during the mixing process, there is no clean-down of the blender between recipe changes, which gives you the ultimate flexibility of operation.


No waiting for formulation.

Fill IBCs off-line for improved efficiency.



Mix any recipe, any time.

Eliminate time-consuming cleaning for instant recipe changeovers.



Prevent mix segregation.

Use the IBC Cone Valve for right first time, every time production.



Hygienic design for quick cleaning.

No system down-time with off-line cleaning of IBCs.
