For 30 years we have supplied fine milled salt into
both the food and industrial sectors.
Custom Powders UK and Dutch sites are both accredited to globally recognised food hygiene standards. We can offer almost all of the processes identified in Our Services to food standard.
We have milled thousands of tonnes of food powders often with one or more additives dosed to very specific tolerances.
We have agglomerated a wide range of food ingredients in our UK batch fluid bed and Dutch continuous agglomeration systems. These have included sugars, thickeners, sweeteners etc.
Blending and dry agglomeration or compaction processing is a core part of our business in the food sector. Years of experience with simple or highly specialist formulations we can offer this service from both sites in 6 process suites allowing a high degree of flexibility in scale and process.
We started processing in this sector more than 20 years ago and have processed more than 15 different products, for 5 major multinational companies.
Our core business in this sector remains in formulation, blending and dry compaction of medicated, antibiotic or feed supplement additives.
Our experience spans from taking fully validated processes and transferring the technology and production to our own facility, through to bespoke development of new product forms.
The segregation, isolation and safe handling of the active components within these formulations is guaranteed by our unique process suite design, our hygiene standards and our time proven validated cleaning procedures. All of this would mean nothing without the diligence and integrity of our operating staff.
These services are only offered from our UK plant where 2 process suites are licenced to the requirements of the VMD (Veterinary Medicines Directorate).
This covers a wide and varied field of raw materials with many different processes.
Whether it is check sieving and repacking pharmaceutical excipients or the critical dispersion of additives into materials to be formulated into medical products, we have the technology and process standard to match.
Our care and diligence when handling customers’ materials has enabled a customer to entrust drying materials where a single batch value has been up to £1million. In other instances, we have milled several pharmaceutical excipients for major healthcare companies.
With 16 process units and more than 40 different processes possible, we routinely adapt processes to achieve specific customer requirements and we regularly exceed their expectations.
During one emergency we set up a de-dusting service capable of 40 tonnes per day until the manufacturer’s problem was resolved. During others we sieved out black specs from hundreds of tonnes, we crushed thousands of tonnes, we dried product in a thousand IBC’s, blended and sieved similar tonnages and agglomerated hundreds of tonnes.
We have lots of equipment and it can be configured in many ways, to exactly suit your requirements.
For 30 years we have supplied fine milled salt into both the food and industrial sectors.
Manufactured to FSSC 22000 standard our Microfine Salt is routinely used in both the dairy food sector and in dry seasoning applications. The standard pack is 25kg sacks, special pack sizes range from 12.5kg to 1,000kg big bags.
We also supply a range of salt grades to be used in industrial applications ranging from the oil-well industry to specialist electronics manufacture.

As a processor of food products and in order to maintain our high standards of hygiene and care, we assess all materials to be brought on site. The following materials are excluded from being brought onto the site:
In addition any material recognised as an EU food Allergen is excluded from food processing units. All food processes are HACCP assessed before production starts, customers are invited to be part of the procedure and can request a copy of the HACCP assessment. Your requirements for Kosher and Halal certification are possible for any food process offered. Due to the often unique process for each product, this is completed on request, on a Customer by Customer basis.
