New Synlait Canning & Blending Facility gains Chinese approval

As the negotiated Design & Build contractors on the new Synlait Milk Ltd Canning and Blending Facility, Apollo Projects are proud to see the plant gain approval for the export of infant formula base powders to China.

Approval for import is only granted to selected companies who meet the extremely stringent standards set by the Chinese authorities regarding both product manufacturing and quality, and as such one of the main project requirements for the new plant was to ensure the highest levels of hygiene and cleanability.

Synlait’s new facility is undoubtedly world class, as the design team lead by Apollo challenged the status quo and set new industry benchmarks in both design processes and hygiene detailing.

The state-of-the-art-Infant Formula Dry Canning and Blending plant has several hygiene zones, one of the highest grades of HEPA filtration available on the market, is able to produce 6 tonne per hour and has continuous process monitoring.  It maintains pressure and humidity levels within each zone to optimise production and is 100% cleanable.

The approval of the new facility for Chinese export validates Apollo’s reputation as an industry leader in the design and construction of process intensive and controlled environment facilities.
