As your beverage business grows, it’s critical to adapt to new ways of doing business and of making your products. As you make your product in larger quantities, you can often save money on ingredients by purchasing in bulk, and by purchasing concentrates that can be diluted during beverage processing. This simple change can offer significant cost savings.
Inline blending products, available from your beverage processing equipment vendor, automate the process of blending the ingredients required for your recipe, but these products do so much more, too. With inline blending, dilutions required for concentrated products automatically happen as part of the blending process.
By incorporating inline blending, you can receive ingredients in bulk and concentrates, and store these in tanks directly from the manufacturer. The inline blending system adds the concentrates to the recipe, along with the dilution required.
With this system, processing your beverage recipe is completely automated, even when you have multiple ingredients, with multiple dilution requirements. Set up the recipe rules once, and the product mixes itself in correct proportions.
In addition to saving you money, this process also ensures a more consistent product. If you’ve been blending with a more manual process, you know how difficult it can be to get a perfectly consistent product every time. This problem only grows as the size of your batch grows. By using inline blending, you eliminate this problem completely, regardless of batch size.
Talk to your equipment vendor about an inline blending system for your business. This system can help you get more product out the door faster, ensuring consistency along the way. In addition, it can help you to save money on ingredients, all while ensuring concentrated ingredients are diluted and mixed appropriately. It may be the single most important addition your business sees this year.
