Moldova: Vegetable Packing House Design
WFLO industry experts conducted a vegetable packinghouse design project in Moldova. The packinghouse team was charged with the task of designing and preparing complete financial models for two alternative vegetable packinghouses in Moldova. One would be based upon an existing facility, and one would be constructed on a “Greenfield” basis. The team spent the initial part of the trip traveling in Moldova and interviewing growers, packers, and shippers of vegetables, as well as several design and construction engineering firms. They also visited with leaders from groups of cooperatives, trade associations, and appropriate government agencies. The packinghouse designs and financial models were then executed based upon the information gathered from these interviews. WFLO experts conducted a storage operations course in Yerevan, Armenia based. The course is directed toward area managers and senior level supervisors of refrigerated warehouses. This 2.5 day course will include such modules as Introduction to Warehouse Operations and Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures (SSOPs).
