DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - FOOD PROCESSING -

Milmeq, a leader in high-tech food pro­cess­ing sys­tems, has won an AU$18 mil­lion con­tract to pro­vide its tech­nol­ogy to a beef pro­cess­ing plant.

The com­pany will sup­ply the Aus­tralian Agri­cul­tural Com­pany (AACo) with all its pro­cess­ing equip­ment, in­clud­ing bon­ing and slaugh­ter­ing process equip­ment, re­frig­er­a­tion, air con­di­tion­ing, chill­ing and freez­ing sys­tems, along with op­er­a­tions for ma­te­ri­als han­dling and pal­letis­ing.

Milmeq has started work­ing on the project that is ex­pected to be com­pleted by mid-to-late 2014.

Mike Light­foot, Milmeq’s CEO, says the tech­nol­ogy will put the new pro­cess­ing fa­cil­ity among the world’s lead­ers in mov­ing to highly tech­no­log­i­cal pro­cesses, which the com­pany has de­vel­oped in New Zealand.
