Expert Solutions for Safe and Efficient RTE Food Facilities: Stellar's Proven Track Record
As a seasoned expert in designing and constructing facilities for the world's leading food manufacturers, including Boar's Head, Columbus Foods, Kraft Heinz, Nestlé, and Cuisine Solutions, Stellar possesses an intimate understanding of the diverse requirements of modern-day RTE (Ready-to-Eat) food processors. Within the prepared and ready-to-eat foods industry, we embrace an integrated approach, delivering comprehensive services from project inception to completion. This encompasses assisting in site selection and permitting, crafting world-class facility designs and construction, process engineering, procuring and installing process equipment, and overseeing facility and process commissioning and startup.
The prevention of allergen and microbial-related recalls demands adherence to stringent sanitary design best practices for both building and process equipment design—a facet in which Stellar excels. Our expertise has been instrumental in defining the industry's widely accepted 11 food safety principles.
Our adept team of experts establishes distinct zones of control to segregate production areas for raw materials from those dedicated to cooked, ready-to-eat products. Moreover, we ensure that employee welfare and support areas remain separate to prevent any contact between individuals exposed to raw ingredients and those working in critical hygiene work centers handling RTE products.
As technology's role continues to expand in the industry, understanding best practices for robotics and process control systems becomes paramount. In this aspect, Stellar is well-versed, exemplified by our achievement in developing the industry's first-ever triple-lane assembly line for Heinz’s frozen-food processing plant. This remarkable line, believed to be the fastest entree line in North America, produces an astounding 9 million cases per year, underscoring our mastery of speed and efficiency.
With Stellar as your strategic partner, you gain access to a wealth of knowledge and a proven track record in crafting cutting-edge solutions for the RTE food processing industry. Our commitment to excellence and innovation is the driving force behind our unwavering pursuit of success for our clients.
