Food Processing Plant Expansion Options

A temporary building can provide the basic environmental and operational conditions needed for the production of safe food by providing cost effective and flexible controlled areas.

Buildings and facilities designed to prevent food processing contamination

Food premises are designed and constructed to minimise the likelihood of contamination of food arising from unnecessary movement of food and personnel within the premises. However food processing is driven by the increased specification demands from large retail customers, the consumer appetite for greater variety and changes in the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety. This means internal operational space and storage becomes a premium, often resulting in the need for buildings to be altered, extended or external space used for storage of packaging and transport equipment, often compromising on hygiene.

Food processing, production and packaging expansion with a temporary building

Deciding which parts of your food processing operation will need to lend themselves to flexibility is an important consideration. But before the architect puts pencil to blueprint to design you a conventional building solution – consider this: A temporary building can provide a more cost effective and flexible option. Prerequisite food hygiene requirements mean pest control, training areas, good hygiene practice for packaging and transport hygiene should all have a dedicated space protected from the elements. This is where a temporary building can provide you with the ideal, low cost and highly flexible solution.
