Gay Lea Cheese Block Manufacturing Facility
Gay Lea Foods Cooperative Ltd.
Gay Lea Foods Cooperative Ltd. is a Canadian cooperative that manufactures dairy products for retail, foodservice, industrial, and export markets. With numerous plants across Ontario, Gay Lea is owned and operated by Ontario milk producers and currently represents thirty-five per cent of all Ontario dairy farms.
Gay Lea’s Salerno Division in Hamilton required a special purpose building for the processing of cheese block. Engaged by Gay Lea, Allyant managed the design-build project from concept to completion. The construction of the 15,000 sf processing facility is a notable example of planning, quality, and execution in project delivery. All finishes within the facility are clean and durable, and the HVAC system provides precise temperature and humidity control throughout all required spaces.
