Melbourne yoghurt factory creates 200 jobs

Date

An expanded yoghurt factory in Melbourne's southeast will create 200 jobs, bringing good news to an area affected by recent company collapses.

The 3000-square metre, $30 million Chobani Australia factory upgrade was officially opened today and will triple production at the Dandenong South factory.

The upgrade is expected to create 50 manufacturing and management jobs and will create a further 150 jobs by the time the plant reaches full capacity in three years time.

Victorian Agriculture and Food Security Minister Peter Walsh said the plant would create jobs and put more Victorian dairy products on export markets.

Earlier this week, Gourmet Food Holdings and Waterwheel were placed in receivership. Cracker maker Waterwheel is based in Dandenong.

Last month, jobs at Dair Industries in Dandenong were placed in doubt with the collapse of car parts maker Autodom.
