The demands from consumers today are constantly changing. To stay ahead of the competition, food manufacturers must adopt flexible and efficient production processes. Whereas fixed mixers are difficult and time consuming to clean between recipe changeovers, particularly where different liquids or allergens are involved, Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) now allow food manufacturers to quickly change over recipes, add liquids to blends, reduce the risk of allergen cross-contamination.
Key points for this presentation include:

  • How developments in tumble blending technology have created the ability to add liquid to an IBC Blending System and expand the capabilities of this flexible and agile process
  • How to minimize downtime of this key value adding process step between product changeovers
  • How to create a lean, responsive manufacturing system that can respond to customer demands on short lead times and small order sizes without increasing costs
