Food & Beverage
The future of food starts here.
Lab-grown plant and animal proteins. Ready-to-prepare meals on your doorstep. Healthy-eating trends that change with the seasons. And a transparent and traceable food supply. The food & beverage industry has never been more exciting—or more challenging. The next few years will bring radical transformation. Are you ready to compete and win?
Our customers are. They rely on Gray to equip them with the most advanced solutions available. Like bringing virtual reality (VR) into the design-build process so you can see the future of your facility. Implementing SmartVent technology as a safer way to combat dust. Designing, installing, and commissioning unloading systems with zero operator intervention. Or using the full breadth of our engineering expertise to build the longest and fastest Snap Chill freezer in the world. There’s no universal blueprint for our facilities. That’s why we tailor every project to your needs.
From process and packaging to food safety, automation and more, our solutions help customers increase production, solve for labor shortages, mitigate costs, and ensure FSMA compliance. Whether you need everything or just one thing, we can design, build, or optimize a turnkey solution that helps future-proof your business.
We’ve delivered projects for sectors across the industry, including:
