The new Pactum Dairy Group factory in Shepparton will be supplying UHT milk to China through a recently signed agreement.

Freedom Foods managing director Rory Macleod told the opening ceremony last week his company had reached a strategic supply agreement in April with Bright Dairy of China.

Bright Dairy is one of China’s largest dairy producers.

Mr Macleod said Australia had a unique advantage in the supply and manufacture of high quality premium agriculture-based foods.

‘‘With increasing demand from markets in China and South-East Asia for high quality value-added product, Australia, through companies such as Pactum, is well placed to play an important role in this supply chain.’’

The factory is a joint venture between Freedom Foods Group and Australian Consolidated Milk.

The facility has an initial capacity for 100million litres annually, with capability to be increased up to 300million litres in the future.
