Snack Food Processing

Over 45 years in the snack food industry

Whether you work with crisps, nuts, or pork scratchings, we have a range of products that are particularly suited for the snack food industry. It’s simple: we don’t just design machines. We design solutions.

We have a proven ability to make businesses better – less wasteful, more efficient, and more profitable.

Machinery for Snack Food Processing

Flavouring System - Dry Ingedients

Tumble Drums & Flavour Systems

For coating your snack foods with dry seasoning. A variable tilt frame assembly exposes each piece of the product for even and consistent coating, while a gentle tumbling action safeguards your most fragile products.

De-Oiling Conveyors - Cox & Plant

De-Oiling Conveyors

An integral part of all snack food processing, de-oiling conveyors turn your hot cooked snack foods to allow oil to drain safely and efficiently through a stainless steel open mesh.


Grading Conveyors

Suitable for fines removal and slithers, broken, oversized, undersized, different fractions, or otherwise unsatisfactory produce. Ideal for the snack food production lines as it is a gentle process and won’t result in any chipped, scratched or broken products. Our grading conveyors have been used to grade nuts and cereals or to remove fines or slithers from crisps or popcorn.

Metering Conveyors - Cox & Plant

Metering Conveyors

Metering conveyors create an even feed as well as spread of product. This will guarantee a sustainable input of product at the start of your production line, which will optimise each line operation.


Multihead Weighers

In our experience optimising the feed to a multihead weigher can lead to the fastest return on investment in the industries we work in. We can save 5% giveaway across your line and our conveyors are energy efficient and easy to hygiene.

If you need to split your factory over multiple levels we have many different options to elevate and lower your products.

Spiral Elevators – can safely move your products to different levels without compromising their integrity

Bucket Elevators – make it possible to move your produce between different levels. And the conveyor systems have much smaller footprints

Swan Neck Conveyors – allow you to make the most of your available space without compromising on speed, efficiency, or safety

Vibratory Conveyors - Cox & Plant

Vibratory Conveyors

Vibratory conveyors are superior to standard conveyor belts as they are quieter, more compact, more efficient, and much easier to clean and service. They also have gentle handling and we have developed a contact surface specifically for the snack food sector and they all have the option of soft start control.


A supremely efficient first-in first-out system that guarantees safe storage and gentle feeding of all kinds of snack foods. Your products will be delivered to precisely where they’re needed, precisely when they’re needed, and in precisely the right quantities.
Gated Distribution System - resize

Distribution Systems

Product flows through the main line distribution conveyors where each of the “junctions” can be called from the multihead weigher to deliver product. This ensures no starvation and all the multihead’s are replenished on demand with ready to pack product.

Single & Double Column Tippers

Our tippers move product with minimal physical involvement and as only one bin is used it can be washed at the end of each process.
