Meat Processing, Production, and Packing Plants

Meat processing facilities have a variety of needs that include much more than just thermal performance. Beef, pork, lamb, and other meat production rooms often necessitate a distinct set of environmental requirements particular to each type of meat.

Because the meat market is so diverse and preparation differs greatly by style and taste, processing plants must be constructed to accommodate for a variety of functions, like:

  • Cutting
  • Drying
  • Aging
  • Curing
  • Smoking
  • Seasoning


  • Cooling
  • Freezing
  • Blast Freezing


  • Vacuum Packaging
  • Boxing
  • Shipping
