CLEGG FOOD PROJECTS COMPLETES £1MILLION GREEN SCHEME FOR DAIRY FIRM

CLEGG FOOD PROJECTS COMPLETES £1MILLION GREEN SCHEME FOR DAIRY FIRM

CLEGG Food Projects has completed a £1.1million upgrade at a site of a leading dairy company to encourage greener ways of working.

The work has been carried out at Dairy Crest’s site in Foston, Derbyshire.

A new link building between the milk bottling site and the adjacent factory that makes plastic bottles means there is a reduced need for vehicle movement across a site that can bottle up to 250 million litres of milk per annum.

Nationally renowned Clegg Food Projects, which provides solutions for major food operations all over the UK, completed the complex project while the Dairy Crest site remained in full operation.

“It was an unusually complicated project since we had to access the bottle-making site while there were still vehicle movements and people working at the site,” said John Moxon, business development director at Clegg Food Projects.

“That required a flexible and co-operative approach to working with the client that meant we could both achieve our aims. We are both very pleased with the results.”

This was the fifth time that Clegg Food Projects has worked on the site since building the Dairy Crest factory at Foston 10 years ago.

The new link building means that bottles are now moved between factories on conveyor belts rather than by wagons, as they were in the past.

This has led to the reduction in vehicle movements across the site which has consequently seen a fall in overall emissions and diesel fuel use.

Clegg Food Projects also constructed a new mezzanine floor, for the installation of conveying and handling equipment, in the bottle-making factory.

“I am delighted that we have completed another project for our client Dairy Crest,” John added. “We have considerable experience in this area and have the expertise to undertake complex design and construction projects that enable our clients to cut costs and work more efficiently.”
