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.
