New cheese factory to open in Clark Freeport Zone in the Philippines

Archetype Philippines is commissioned to work on a new factory for Savencia Fromage & Dairy.

Focusing on cheese specialties and high value-added dairy ingredients, Savencia is among the world’s leading milk processors. As part of their strategy to promote Savencia products on a more global scale, specifically in fast growing and emerging markets, the company has embarked to build a greenfield cheese factory in Clark Freeport zone Pampanga in the Philippines. This is primarily to serve demand of ASEAN markets and neighboring regions.

Savencia had engaged Archetype Philippines initially for the new plant’s technical due diligence, our responsibilities were escalated to cover architecture, engineering, tendering support, project construction and cost management services.

Within the Clark Freeport zone, Savencia reserves a land area of approximately 77,000 square meters, the cheese factory has a building area of around 14,000 square meters, with production facilities for processed cheese, cream cheese and cream. The construction to land ratio offers much room for future expansion program.

Savencia cheese factory is targeted for an operational opening by the end of 2020.
