An efficient step-up for infant formula production
Dry-blend solutions are a dependable choice if you’re looking to optimise the efficiency of your infant formula production without risking the safety and quality of your brand. Prepared for direct addition to powder blends, our dry-blend lactose and protein ingredients eliminate the need for further wet blending and drying.
The safety and quality demands on infant nutrition production are beyond compare with any other category in food processing. Made for the youngest and most vulnerable of consumers, infant formulas must deliver premium, essential nutrition with the highest microbiological safety.
That’s why we produce all our dry-blend solutions in a high-care environment that complies with the highest food safety and environmental standards. Close attention to powder quality ensures our solutions are easy to blend with the other powder ingredients in your infant formula production. This production setup is designed for premium ingredients. We call it ‘Premium Quality by Design’.
How do we achieve ‘Premium Quality by Design’?
The answer lies in the production process.
We have designed a production process that ensures the highest quality with each batch of our premium ingredients. Pasteurisation, drying and packaging are all carried out under high-care conditions.
What’s in it for you?
By reducing the burden on your spray-drying facilities, our dry-blend ingredients enable you to produce premium infant formulas with less energy, a lower carbon footprint and reduced costs.
At the same time, they free up drying capacity, giving you the flexibility to produce a wider range of products from one dry-blend base. So, you can expand production without expanding your plant.
