Matcon supplies powder handling systems to leading sports nutrition manufacturers, enabling them to achieve a flexible and efficient manufacturing process to meet their consumer demand peaks without increasing inventory or costs. The system is based on containerised blending which eliminates the need to clean-down between recipe changes as no product is in contact with the blender.
With a worldwide reputation built on over 35 years of experience, Matcon delivers systems from the simple start-up, to more complex multiple mixer configurations. The modular design of the equipment allows it to be easily added to as your company grows.
