“Blending is easy, but building the blender is complex,” answers Manufacturing Manager Bonnie Simon, referring to the automated blender Mack builds for f’REAL!® Foods, a young California-based company in the business of blending frozen beverages. “It is certainly as challenging as many of the medical devices we manufacture.”
“The honest answer is that Mack matched our criteria really well,” says Voges, who listed quality systems, vertical integration, financial stability, location, cost, culture and size as f’REAL!’s primary considerations when choosing a contract manufacturer.
With the summer months upon us, there’s no better time to try a f’REAL! milkshake.

And for the coffee lovers, you can enjoy premium brewed gourmet coffee in classic coffee, mocha or caramel frozen cappuccino.
