GrainCorp Oils to expand Numurkah facility.February 12, 2014 4:04am
Goulburn Valley food manufacturing has received a welcome boost, with Numurkah set to benefit from a $125
GrainCorp Oils yesterday announced it was consolidating its integrated edible oils and spreads operations.
Part of the consolidation will include an upgrade to the company’s Numurkah site, which will be expanded to include vegetable oil processing.
GrainCorp’s West Footscray operations will also be expanded and upgraded.
Forty-four jobs will be created across the two sites.
GrainCorp Oils group general manager Sam Tainsh said the decision would improve efficiency.
‘‘This project involves creating a strategic hub within Victoria that is located far closer to key oilseed growing regions,’’ Mr Tainsh said.
‘‘It delivers a logical and more efficient focal point for the sourcing, crushing, refining and distribution of our locally produced edible oils and food ingredients.’’
As part of the consolidation, the company’s operations at Murarrie, Queensland will be relocated to Victoria.
Victorian Deputy Premier Peter Ryan welcomed the announcement.
‘‘The investment at Numurkah will provide a boost for the local community and the Goulburn Valley more broadly and is good news for agriculture and food processing in the region,’’ Mr Ryan said.
‘‘It demonstrates that the Goulburn Valley remains an attractive place to invest and continues to be a highly productive region, with diverse business opportunities and a strong future.’’
