Meat, Poultry & Seafood: Design & Construction

Food Plant Engineering is a leader in the design build construction of meat, poultry, and seafood processing, production, and distribution facilities.

Meat, poultry and seafood processing plants need to be designed and constructed with food safety and productivity in mind. Moreover, consumers want to feel good about the products they purchase and want them to be sustainably produced. Inspection requirements are greater in this segment of the food industry than in any other sector: FSIS inspectors from the USDA provide daily oversight within each facility. And processors are constantly driving to increase productivity due to competitive pressures.

Our firm has a long history of providing design and construction services for USDA-inspected meat, poultry, and seafood plants, so we have considerable knowledge regarding the facility and layout guidelines and requirements for USDA plants. In fact, our firm was chosen to update the USDA's Handbook 570, A Guide to Construction and Layout of the U.S. Inspected Meat and Poultry Plants before it was replaced by HACCP regulations.

We first plan and design your facility to be hygienic and efficient. Then, we can construct the facility from the ground up so you can concentrate on growing and sustaining your business.
