Our Engineers are experts in food industry manufacturing and processing facilities design and are committed to promoting best practice in design and implementation within the industry. Recently we have designed and project managed Salmon Hatcheries (Recirc Unit) for Meridian Salmon Group; Hot Smoking Extension and Factory re-mapping for R R Spink & Sons; New Gutting Facility for Cooke Aquaculture; new Bakery Facility for Uin Foods; new Gluten Free Factory for Nairn’s Oatcakes Ltd, as well as a new Distillery (Gin + Whisky) for Dornoch Distillery – the first organic Distillery of its kind. Our projects have touched every area of the Food Industry and our 29 year old experience in this area is hard to match.
The challenges food industry is currently facing – sustainable food production while causing minimal or no harm to the environment– are similar to other industries in the global but rapidly changing world. The key issues to be addressed by the food industry are:
Reduction in carbon footprint
Reduction in food waste
Recycling of food packaging and reduction in food packaging material use
Securing animal welfare
Active facilitation and promotion of organic food production
