Ace Fresh Keeping Industries - Lianyungang, China
Ace Fresh Keeping Industries needed to construct a 19,750-square-meter fresh cut fruit and vegetable process plant in Lianyungang, China.
Food Tech was chosen to lead this design-build project because of their internationally recognized expertise in ready to eat (RTE) food manufacturing facility design. The project required multiple refrigeration engineering solutions including a central ammonia refrigeration system for process, receiving, and shipping areas.
The completed multi-function facility has the ability to process 120,000 metric-tons of RTE fruit and vegetables annually, as well as capabilities for the production of nutritional supplements, pills, and powders. The entire plant was built to comply with the highest United States and European food grade standards.
During this project, Food Tech delivered the following:
- Refrigerated receiving dock from pre-cool farm facility
- Fresh cut fruit/vegetable processing capable of 120,000 metric tons per year
- Nutritional supplement, pills, and powders production
- Ammonia refrigeration central system
- US and European grade compliance
ACE Fresh Keeping Industries is one of eleven venture companies wholly owned by the multi-industry ACE Group, headquartered in Shanghai, China. The Lianyungang facility is ACE’s first endeavor into RTE food processing and will primarily serve high-end consumers from eastern cities of China and overseas.
