At Vitafoods Europe 2019, the contract manufacturer and co-packer SternMaid will present its services on the joint stand L56 of two of its sister companies, SternVitamin and SternLife. As a competent partner for toll production, SternMaid rounds off the offer of the Stern-Wywiol Gruppe for customers in the functional food sector. Among other things, visitors from industry can inform themselves of filling and packaging options and SternMaid’s modern blending technology.
With its highly precise blending lines, SternMaid is able to produce powdered foods and food supplements such as meal replacers, dietetic preparations, sports foods, dry beverage bases and protein powders and fill them into a wide variety of retail packs. The small-pack lines at the Wittenburg company’s newly built Plant 2 have recently been complemented by a filling line for single-portion sachets. Besides these, the contract manufacturer can fill products into plastic tubs or the traditional composite cans, stand-up pouches and block-bottom bags, or tubular bags with or without folding boxes. Thanks to the latest investments, the mixtures to be filled can now be produced directly in Plant 2.
Networking of the companies within the Stern-Wywiol Gruppe enables SternMaid’s customers to benefit from the group’s extensive expertise in the field of research and development. On Stand L56, interested visitors can learn more about the development of formulations and products at SternLife or seek advice on applications from the micronutrient experts at SternVitamin. In addition, the food technologists, nutrition scientists, analysists and researchers from the extensively equipped Stern-Technology Center can help customers with the development of innovative health and lifestyle products.
