Bread & Baking
Expert food processing plant design consultants to the bread and baking industry.
Like the rest of the food industry, baking production facilities are subject to strict health and safety requirements and tight profit margins. Our team of food processing plant design consultants are fully experienced in the complex issues in this area, including the added explosion and fire risks posed by flour dust.
When it comes to baking, our proof really is in the pudding. Our qualified team has worked on large-scale projects for the biggest names in bread, cakes and pastries, including designing new conveyor systems for Country Style Foods, installing large capacity flour silos for General Mills and managing dust control projects for high-profile food producers.
We have in-depth knowledge of the unique issues faced by the baking industry, including striking a balance between producing a “fresh” product without additives and one with a sufficient shelf life. Our knowledge covers cooling coil corrosion, distribution & transport margins, pest control, allergen/free-from/control & separation and flour dust.
We managed a multi-function project team to install new larger capacity flour silos and batch weighing facility for General Mills, the globally-recognised company behind brands such as Betty Crocker, Cheerios and Häagen-Dazs.
