O termo aparece em uma tabela desta forma: "Toll blending/blow-moulders".

Mas eu achei em um site este trecho, não sei se pode servir de contexto para a definição do termo:
"Chemical Toll Blending

At Arrochem, a large percentage of our business is chemical toll blending.

What is toll blending?
The terms toll blending, contract manufacturing, contract blending, toll manufacturing all refer to essentially the same arrangement. It’s a process in which customers provide us with a formula and usually some or all of the necessary raw materials and packaging to produce a chemical blend, and we blend, package prepare shipments for a predetermined fee."

This is not handing services over to third parties; this is a” package” from the chemical blending, the custom formulation, the packaging, and delivery it is the entire supply chain. This is “outsourcing at fixed-cost” and there is a lot going offshore to China.
Toll Blending and Blow- Molding is not the same thing. Blow- Molders is just about molds, no chemical blending services involved.

“Toll Blending is about outsourcing chemical formulas, protected by confidentiality agreements to scale up production and about “Custom Formulating” (skilled chemists have the ability to formulate products to meet customers’ specific needs and requests, whether it involves modifying one of our existing products or formulating a completely new product). Toll Blenders also offer quality and consistency of all blends from initial receipt of raw materials to final packaging. If you do not have your own formulation, experienced chemists can work with you to develop products to meet your specific needs. We also offer customized packaging and labeling services to create a professional image for your finished product.”

“Others prefer to focus on sales and marketing, and choose to outsource the manufacturing part of their business permanently.”

“We provide a Customized Blow mold in just 7 days after approval of designs. This could be the least time span for making pet toolings.We assure satisfaction in case of quality, delivery and in competitive pricing of all services and every order placed by your concern.”

Toll Blending
What are Toll Blending services or Toll Manufacturing services?
Toll blending or toll manufacturing simply means we provide blending services for the formula you supply. We scale-up your formula, blend it to your specifications and then package the product per your specifications, delivering it to you or your specified third party.

If you need an explanation about how I know this is outsourcing, apart from all the links that directed to Toll Bending Outsourcing, I will leave you a link to one outsourcing article wrote for Pharma IQ.

It is Pharmaceuticals, Chemicals, Oil and Gas, Defense and Military, etc.

It is outsourcing, meaning to hand your work over someone else’s facilities, be in inshore, nearshore, or offshore outsourcing.

There is the model value-based solution, which is what these manufactures propose, and there even is the partnership model (GE).

It involves IP, CMOs and the entire value chain.

They handle the production and the re- formulation, from raw materials to packaging and delivery to the customer’s clients.
