Projects & Publications
Fluid Milk Plant Design
As a group we designed a hypothetical fluid milk plant that would produce a competitive kefir drink accessible to the national market. The project required knowledge and research about the foundation of constructing a plant (equipment, production flow and construction of rooms), the product (kefir production and raw materials), food safety and quality programs, marketing and business strategy (cost and target customer). The final outcome was a presentation pitch of the kefir product as well as a written report that outlined the construction and running of the plant.
