Customers select from one of our standard mixes or have us custom blend a mix by specifying the percentage of each product wanted in the mix. We put each ingredient into a separate bin, then it is precisely fed onto the Accublender belt layering one product on top of the other. As it falls through special screens and paddles, the ingredients are blended together creating a consistent product, load after load.
