Yashili Production Plant Among Finalists at NZ Property Awards
Yashili New Zealand Dairy Company was named as a finalist in the MyTrends Industrial Property category at the New Zealand Rider Levett Bucknall Property Industry Awards on Friday June 17, receiving Merit for its infant formula production plant in Pokeno. Yashili New Zealand was the only dairy manufacturing plant represented in the Industrial Property category at the awards.
“Our production plant is located in the newly created Gateway Business Park, adjacent to Pokeno Village. It took three years of construction and NZD $220 million to build the production plant which aims to help Yashili achieve two simple goals – to produce the highest quality infant formula and raise the healthiest babies,” said William Zhao, Yashili New Zealand General Manager.
The plant was designed and constructed with the help of NZ-based companies Babbage Consultants, GEA Process and EBERT Construction. The project is notable for its success in balancing constructability with the stringent hygiene requirements demanded of an infant milk powder processing plant. The quality of the finishes was signed off by AsureQuality.
“The result is a best-in-class production plant, designed to operate under strict quality controls. It boasts world-class facilities utilising the latest technology and finest automatic control systems. Temperature and humidity are controlled around the clock, guaranteeing stable production and ensuring reliable product quality,” said Zhao.
The infant formula production plant also features a permanent Visitor Centre where school parties and tourists can get an insight into the production process from grazing and milk supply through to canning.
The awards, held at Vector arena, celebrated excellence in property development, judged on economic and financial factors, project vision and innovation, design and construction, owner and user satisfaction, and sustainability and efficiency of operation.
