Infant Nutrition Manufacturing

We help manufacturers achieve agile and flexible manufacturing systems in a highly regulated industry.

Your Challenges

Achieving the highest food safety levels is always the priority.  Bacteriological contamination is a constant risk when handling nutrition powders.

Milk powder is notoriously difficult to handle, being sticky and poor flowing.

Ensuring that the micro-ingredient fortifiers are well distributed & mixed can be a challenge.

Our Experience

Our pharmaceutical experience means we understand the importance of complying with regulatory standards.  Our IBCs are designed to the highest specifications.

We work with the leading global manufacturers and local companies around the world.


How we can help

A system designed to improve production flow is what we do.  All manufacturing steps take place simultaneously for optimum efficiency.

The Cone Valve ensures ease of handling of even the most difficult flowing powders.

Dry/Air-washing is available to remove the risk of waterborne contamination.

Our Approach

Our stainless steel IBCs are hygienically designed for ease of cleaning and to reduce the likelihood of waterborne bacteriological infection.

Fully contained at all times, the system is dust-free and reduces the space required for clean-room or safe zone status.

System Modules

The Matcon system is based on using Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) to transport powders between manufacturing steps and as a blending vessel.

Because everything is contained within the IBC, there is no clean-down of the blender between recipe changes, which gives you 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.
