Foodcon is a design and construction firm, serving the food processing industry.
The company’s first project, in 1975, was the design and construction of a provincially inspected poultry slaughter plant. Before that project was even completed, Foodcon was selected to undertake renovations to a federally inspected mechanically separated meat plant. The relationship with both clients grew and many additions, renovations, and new plants were completed for these companies and their successors. As time moved on, Foodcon expanded into other types of food facilities including meat further processing (raw and RTE), bakery, tofu, vegetables, ingredients, desserts, and gluten-free.
FOODCON FOUNDER, DONALD T. PLUMSTEAD
A food processing plant is not a building - it's a big machine with many moving parts that must function in harmony. A well designed plant incorporates all of the following design elements...
facilitates optimum process flow to minimize labour and material handling
is built of durable materials that are well detailed for ease of cleaning and maintenance
is supported by services that are technologically advanced for energy efficiency yet simple for ease of operation and non-specialist repair
it's equipment layout facilities operator access and control, appropriate lighting, convenient repair access, and ease of sanitation.
allows for 3 sided expansion without interference to ongoing plant operations"
