Freshpet Facility Expansion

Bethlehem, PA

Freshpet is the first producer of health-conscious, preservative-free pet food.

MHA has worked with Freshpet on several projects from its early beginnings, designing FDA/USDA grade facilities to accommodate the use of fresh ingredients, cooking and refrigeration to keep pace with growth.  Facilities conform to GMP standards.

MHA designed the adaptive re-use of its initial 80,000 ft² facility including administrative offices and manufacturing, as well as 70,000 ft² of expansions to the initial facility to accommodate its expanding product line and increased demand. This work also included the masterplanning and design of a new 155,000 ft² building on the same campus increasing total production space to more than 350,000 ft².
