I am proud of the thoughtfulness, commitment and quality of work Stellar has demonstrated through the design, construction and commissioning of our production facility. Teamwork is critical to any project; the Starbucks and Stellar teams worked well together to achieve a first-class production facility.
The thirst of every beverage processor must be quenched with design concepts tailored to their various applications
Running an efficient and productive operation is vital for every beverage processor. When you’re formulating and distributing bottled products such as coffee or tea, milk, soft drinks, beer, water or fruit juices, you need a process line and facility that produces beverages at the same consistency and quality consumers expect. As the nation’s No. 1 food and beverage design and construction firm, Stellar implements the latest technology and innovative processing methods and infrastructure systems for beverage facilities including:
- Clean in place (CIP)
- Storage vats and tanks
- Central utility plants
- Palletizing / material handling
- Blow molding / bottle making
- Carton filling
We designed and built the world’s largest dairy beverage plant and we stand as the only company that has designed and built two roasting plants for Starbucks, one of which was featured by Food Engineering as one of its top sustainable food plants. And our expertise in the beverage space shows we’re the very best at meeting the modern beverage processors’ unique needs — from LEED certification to increased productivity.
