Market leaders in sweetener solutions
The Sweetener Company factory is located in the centre of the UK in Derbyshire. In addition to the UK being a competitive location we have enhanced this through the quality of our employees and with a heavy and continuing investment programme, designed to improve quality, efficiency and competitiveness.
The Production Process
The production process includes initial formulation, recipe development, blending and tablet pressing, we also have granulation and fluid bed dryer capability.
We utilise three pharmaceutical standard tablet presses which, together with the various multi-tip tooling options available can deliver a potential capacity of over 4 million tablets per hour.
Our multi-tip tooling covers varying tablet sizes from 3mm though to 6mm.
We operate three filling and packing lines which run at various speeds reflecting the levels of automation. This enables us to offer flexibility and cost effective support for product launch or market entry projects where initial volumes may be low or may not involve established packaging formats.
The packing function includes filling dispensers, capping and blister carding and a variety of shrink wrapped or bulk packed outer case options.
Our current annual output exceeds 10 million consumer packs supplied for both the UK and export markets.
Whilst our preference in terms of cost effectiveness and quality is to produce finished products ready for the consumer, we are prepared to produce bulk packed or part finished products to be completed closer to the consumer market if necessary. We can also supply sample formats down to 10 or 50 tablet quantities.
We are, therefore, able to assist with product design and development, please view our Products and Services page to see what we can offer.
