Custom processor improves vitamin-mineral blending
When a manufacturer found black specks in its vitamin- mineral blend, a custom processor performed laboratory tests and devised a method to eliminate the specks.
Mississippi Blending custom processes dry ingredients for food, industrial, and pharmaceutical companies. The custom processor blends and packages at its 28,000-square-foot plant in Keokuk, Iowa. The processor provides companies an alternative to increasing in-house capacity for situations such as running new product trials and handling seasonal production peaks. Mississippi Blending can process many dry ingredients and package them for industrial, institutional, or retail use. The processor's equipment packs from 1- to 100-pound quantities in bags, pails, or drums.
