The construction of Keytone Dairy’s second manufacturing facility, located in Izone Industrial Park, Christchurch continues to advance on schedule. It is intended to increase Keytone Dairy’s total powdered product manufacturing capacity to 5,000 tonnes per annum.
The outer shell of the facility, roof, canopy and office are now installed and complete, whilst the internal installation of the plant and equipment has commenced. The sterilised packing room arrived on site in December 2018 and the installation was been finalised in early February 2019. The two-tonne blender, automated canning line and sachet line are due to be shipped to site for installation in the first quarter of the calendar 2019 year.
