The Pactum Dairy Group has developed a state-of-the art new Ultra High Temperature (UHT) milk processing facility with $950,000 in Victorian Government funding, announced today by Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional and Rural Development, Peter Ryan.
The $700,000 was being provided through the Industries for Today and Tomorrow fund in support of the UHT processing facility, while a further $250,000 was being provided through the $1 billion Regional Growth Fund to assist with natural gas connection to the site.
Pactum Dairy Group Pty Limited (PDG) is a joint venture between Australian Consolidated Milk (ACM) and Pactum Australia, part of the Freedom Foods Group Limited (FNP), an ASX listed company.
The initial capabilities of the plant will be 250ml portion pack and 1 litre UHT configuration. Initial capacity will be up to 100m litres, with capability to significantly increase capacity in the longer term.
Trial commissioning started in December 2013.
They expect to be producing 100 million litres of UHT milk in the next three years.
It will generate 35 full time equivalent jobs which should increase to 52 positions over the next three years.
