Learn how to create Sports Nutrition products in an efficient and flexible way.
Sports nutrition manufacturers must now produce an ever-expanding portfolio of products. This often means multiple recipe changeovers, which can impact production efficiency and output.
As the product portfolio expands, so does the list of ingredients needed for your recipes. Many of the powders handled in sports nutrition, such as protein powders can be difficult to process in bulk as they are sticky and therefore poor flowing.
Allergen cross-contaminating is also a serious risk as recipe changeovers increase. This could mean you are spending more time cleaning.
Matcon systems are designed to
Using IBCs for ‘In-bin blending’ will reduce the amount of downtime that is caused by cleaning and also remove the risks associated with handling multiple ingredients. There will be no longer be the need to worry about cross-contamination.
A Matcon IBC system is suitable for all sizes of Sports Nutrition Manufacturers from start-ups to leading market providers. We are proud to supply market leaders in sports nutrition across the globe with a range of IBC systems.
In the competitive sports nutrition industry, you must have a manufacturing system that provides you with the ability to manufacture multiple batches - efficiently and safely. If you have the ability to change recipes, clean down and run other batches simultaneously, then you will not only keep pace with a demanding marketplace but remain one step ahead of your competition.
View our short film to see how a Matcon system compares with a traditional fixed-line mixer system. Both are producing the same recipes and batch sizes but the time savings are obvious.

Are you looking to justify spending your budget on a new blender?
Many of our customers want to become more efficient, running a leaner operation but maintaining a high-quality product. Whether you work in the sports nutrition industry or pharmaceuticals, food or even animal nutrition, your equipment must enable you to produce high-quality products in a cost-effective way.
To help you discover cost savings at the industrial mixing stage, we have developed an easy to use ROI Calculator.
To use the calculator you will need to enter a few simple values which will enable you to calculate the ROI that a tumble blending process will deliver.
Think of all the others things you could do if you weren't cleaning?
If you had the ability to reduce the time you have to spend cleaning and increase the time you can be in production then your output will improve.
We estimate that some manufacturers using fixed mixers (ribbon blenders or paddle blenders) could lose at least 20% of the shift to cleaning time. As the blender must be fully cleaned and dried before changing recipes your whole production process must be halted.
Read our guide to increase efficiency and ensure your resource time is spent producing high volumes of quality products and not cleaning and assembling a blender.
