We have designed processing facilities for multiple clients in the dairy, meat, fish and other food related industries including Fonterra, Silver Fern Farms, Open Country Dairy, ANZCO, AFFCO, Delegat Winery and many others. In these industries, attention to detail and time is critical. We understand this and have a proven record of delivering both.
