Food Production Kitchen Design Concepts

Confectionery Production Kitchen Design

When you ask a young chocolatier or confectioner about what inspired them when they were young, many will tell a story about the wonder and amazement they felt when watching the movie Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory, or Charlie and The Chocolate Factory; depending on how old they are. As other worldly those confectionary production kitchens were, they share some similarities with earthly production kitchens. The basis of all candy and chocolate making is rooted in science, and an expert confectionery production kitchen design will consider every factor. From room temperature and humidity to human and automated product handling, we guide you in every detail.

Bread & Baked Goods Production Kitchens

The bread & baked goods industries have vastly different food production kitchen design requirements, but they also share similarities. A production kitchen designed around breadmaking primarily focuses on savory yeast-raised items, whereas a baked good or patisserie will specialize in pastries, cakes, and other sweet treats. And a production kitchen designed around individual products is critical in streamlining operations and maximizing output. Both types of production kitchens can benefit from various levels of automation, and we work with you to determine the best for your product and your budget.

Edible Cannabis Production Kitchen Design

A growing segment of the food production industry is the infusion of classic snacks and treats with THC for medicinal and recreational purposes. An edible cannabis production kitchen design may include production facilities for sweet baked goods, chocolates, truffles, gummies, and other assorted hard candies, depending on your targeted market segment. These edible cannabis production kitchens are also highly regulated, so the design team must be familiar with all the rules and regulations regarding handling these products. As experts in developing edible cannabis production kitchens, we know what it takes to create a great and safe product for your customers.

Single Serve Portion Production Facilities

The popularity of TV dinners may be long gone, but as our lives get busier, the desire for high-quality, convenient, pre-packaged frozen meals will always be in demand. Single-serve portion production facilities tend to be comprised of two kitchens. A smaller multifunctional kitchen is designed to test out new recipes. And once these recipes are perfected in the test kitchen, they are scaled up to be prepared in the larger production kitchen area. These larger production kitchen designs are typically similar to the smaller test kitchen in functionality but much more prominent in their capacity to cook, portion, package, and freeze the products for transport to the retailers.

Packaging & Storage Facility Design

No matter what type of food production kitchen your product requires, once your products are prepared, they need to be packaged, labeled, and sometimes analyzed to guarantee that what is on the label is also in the package. Depending on the size of your space, these packaging and storage facilities can be fully automated, connected directly to your production kitchen line, or designed as an independent space to allow for greater flexibility. Our design team understands the logistics that go into food processing and packaging, and we work with you to ensure that you will consistently be able to meet the ever-changing demands of your customers.
