Kagome’s Echuca plant has been inundated with job seekers looking for seasonal work.
The tomato processor announced it had 200 seasonal vacancies earlier this month, doubling its normal intake.
Kagome chief executive John Brady said the response was overwhelming.
He said new recruits would start training on January 15, with most to start work on either January 24 or January 25.
Kagome has increased its capacity this season, adding a second production line to 245,000 tonnes of produce this year, up from 175,000 tonnes last year.
Kagome has also struck deals with farmers in the region to start supplying beetroot and carrots on top of its usual tomato crop, in the hope extending production at the Echuca plant past the usual autumn end of tomato processing.
