Edendale MPC Plant

  • Location: Edendale, Southland NZ
  • Completion Date: September 2015
  • Project: Milk Concentrate Plant
  • Client: Tetra Pak
  • End User: Fonterra

The first milk has gone through the new Milk Protein Concentrate (MPC) plant at Fonterra’s Edendale site. The MPC plant is the first of three new plants to be up and running – the Reverse Osmosis (RO) and Anhydrous Milk Fat (AMF) plants will come on line in the next few weeks.  During the past year, almost 1,000 people have worked more than 200,000 hours to build the new plant, which will expand the site’s product portfolio and increase the processing capacity to 16.4 million litres per day.
