Dairy

The delicate nature of dairy processing requires the utmost attention to details to control the risks of contamination. This attention to detail starts with an in-depth evaluation of the process and facility that employs the latest hygienic design standards and technology. Dennis Group has extensive work within the dairy industry, and is very familiar with the regulatory requirements that address the diverse dairy industry.  Our experience in sanitary design guides our design decisions end-to-end, from the receipt of raw ingredients all the way through finished product leaving the site.  Our expertise is not limited to sanitary design of the process, but also the management of the facility’s waste.
