How Sonubaits Make the Perfect Groundbait

STEP 1

Our best selling Krill groundbait contains four main ingredients - three types of pellet, unique to Sonubaits, and a krill powder, each one contributing to the final winning combination

STEP 2

Hundreds of tonnes of pellets are held in stock. Low-oil, floating pellets are a favourite as they are high in attraction, easy to mill and produce a soft, fluffy texture

STEP 3

Fresh krill meal is shipped directly from Norway. For environmental reasons, each bag carries the name of the ship and date when the crustaceans were caught

STEP 4

Each ingredient is weighed out separately, then tipped into a giant hopper attached to an auger with a massive internal screw to mix them together

STEP 5

The mix is then ground up, steel teeth rotate slowly, milling the ingredients and pushing them through a sieve

STEP 6

The mesh sieve size dictates how fine the crumb and particles are, the sieves vary from 1mm to 11mm. Krill is produced using a fine 2.5mm sieve

STEP 7

The milled ingredients are then transferred into a blending machine and krill powder is added. It takes about 20 minutes and ensures uniformity of batches

STEP 8

The groundbait is then transferred to tote bags. Small product runs ensures that the groundbait is always fresh and made to the same high quality

STEP 9

Labels are then added to the bags, before the groundbait is weighed in, bagged up and heat sealed

STEP 10

The groundbait bags are now ready to send out to tackle shops
