From Factory to Front Door: Follow the journey of your exante order!

Ever wondered how your exante order gets delivered to your door? Well now you don’t have to! 

Before the launch of our exciting new Breakfast Pouches, we visited our exante factory to see the exclusive behind-the-scenes of your order.

While you’re scrolling through exante looking for your next tasty goodies, our Food Technologists, Production and Operations teams are hard at work making sure you get the best quality exante order.  

The Food Technologist team are always working to create the best, yummiest recipes for all of our treats, but once they’ve done this, it’s over to our Production team to bring your shakes, snacks and pouches to life.  

How we make your Breakfast Pouches

The special thing about our Breakfast Pouches is that they’re all packaged by hand from our exante factory by our hardworking production team. But, just like our other exante products, your Breakfast Pouches will start their production journey by going through a special technique we like to call Rip & Tip… 

Rip & Tip 

Rip & Tip

This is the first stage of any exante production journey and it involves mixing together all the different components you need for one of our meal replacement shakes. Each ingredient is brought to the production line in large sacks from our suppliers, ready to be ripped open and tipped into a large mixing vat via one of our industrial sieves. 

Mixing Vat 

After all of the mixtures have been processed through one of the sieves, they’ll fall through into the mixing vats. The product will be mixed together for anywhere between 21 and 25 minutes which has been named the Optimum Blending Time by our New Product Technologists.  

Printing 

Printing

While all this is happening, we’ll be working to get all the packaging printed in time for the next stage of production. The packaging will be created in the exante Studio by a team of Creatives, approved by the Brand Team and then it’ll be sent to the factory for printing.  

Once the packaging design has been approved, the Production Team will input it into the machine to be printed onto plain pouches, sachets and packets. 

Packing 

Packing

Now that all the products are mixed and the packaging has been prepared, it’s time to start packing. Usually, we have machines which transport the mixture from the vat, through the factory and into the sachet in a safe way that prevents contamination with our products. But our Breakfast Pouches are special… 

Every Breakfast Pouch we produce is hand packed by a member of our production team. We do this using a scoop and a set of scales to make sure you’re getting all the goodness you need from your Breakfast Pouch meal replacement.  

Checking 

Checking

Once your pouch is filled, it gets heat sealed and passed through an X-ray to check everything is ready to go. After this, it leaves the Production Team and heads into our warehouse to the Operation Team ready to be delivered to your door.
