Rainbow Dust Colours have two sides to their production site, manufacturing and filling. Within the manufacturing areas, they have 350kg contra rotating, shear head mixers for liquid products and rotating steel blade mixers for dry powder products. All manufacturing is handled under strict, cleanroom conditions. These bulk materials are then transferred over to the filling lines for production into finished retail products. For each product line they manufacture, they have automated and semi-automated filling lines for both powder and liquid covering a number of formats from jars, small bottles and tube filling. This investment in automation has allowed them to keep up with continued demand over the years and keep the supply of their products running smoothly.
