Parmalat Canada - Winnipeg Dairy Plant
Parmalat Canada is developing a new dairy processing facility to be located in or around Winnipeg, Manitoba. The proposed new dairy will replace three existing dairies currently located in Manitoba, and considered to be near the end of their practical lives.
The proposed new facility will consist of an approximate area of 130,000 square feet and include fluid milk receiving, processing and packaging in various formats (bags, jugs, gable top cartons) for retail distribution and sale, warehousing and distribution, future drying operations, and potentially other processes to be installed in the future. (cheese, butter, etc.)
The facility and process will be designed and constructed to meet or exceed Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and National Dairy Regulation and Code Sector Interpretive Guideline Requirements for dairy processing facilities and in full compliance with HACCP principles. The project construction start date was late 2015.
The facility itself will consist of an offi ce building, a utilities building, milk receiving bays and silos storage, milk processing plant (pre-treatment and storage, bottling and packaging), a dry warehouse, a refrigerated warehouse and employee parking with truck access roads and fully landscaped grounds.
