Manufacturing & supply chain operations projects


Modular Future-proof food factory lowers costs, cuts lead times by up to 50%

The search for radical new solutions to modern food production deployed our multidisciplinary expertise in consultancy, engineering and project management. Using design thinking a provisional business case was presented: an innovative future-proof food production plant, implemented globally to reduce costs and lead times. The project involved our client’s global centres, each with its own culture, interests and challenges expected to be solved by the project.


Greenfield food plant: future-proof design maximises value 

By undertaking design and construction of a US$100m greenfield food-ingredient plant in Indonesia, we provided our client with increased independence, competitiveness, and production capacity: 1200 tonnes per day with potential for future expansion. Working remotely during the pandemic, Royal HaskoningDHV provided engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services alongside basic design, cost estimate, and value engineering sessions.
