The Idaho Milk Products plant was designed and built in accordance with a strict HACCP (Hazard Analysis, Critical Control Point) program. The plant is unique for a dairy processing operation because, in keeping with HACCP guidelines, each distinct processing step is physically separated and compartmentalized from the other steps. All motor controls and delivery pipes for utilities and milk are contained in specially designed interstitial spaces above the processing areas of operating rooms. This allows us to maintain an unsurpassed level of sanitation and hygiene within the dairy processing environment. Further, the plant uses a “utilidor” around the operating rooms—an access corridor that ensures each of the major processing rooms is accessed directly, not through another operating room. This keeps traffic to a minimum and maintains HACCP separation guidelines within the plant.
Our high-volume, state-of-the-art production facility annually processes 1.6 billion pounds of raw milk into 60 million pounds of MPC/MPI, 155 million pounds of cream, and 55 million pounds of MPP.
