Hexagon’s Micronutrient Premixes are a complete, end-to-end customised solution to your fortification needs. Using the highest quality systems and machinery, we are a one-stop-shop for creating premixes of any range of nutrients that can be put into a wide variety of applications.

 

What is the process like?

Our expert Product Development team will work with you to analyse your specifications and nutritional claims. We use our extensive experience to make specific recommendations for you about how different micronutrients may affect your individual products. We then use pilot scale machines to produce a sample for you.

Once you are completely satisfied with the blend, we can deliver it to you in any quantity required.

We are also one of the few micronutrient premix providers that offer analytical testing and stability testing to ensure that the product has the nutrients it claims.
