National dairy producer Parmalat says it will spend $12 million at its Clarence Gardens manufacturing site in Adelaide, reinforcing its commitment to jobs and growth in South Australia.
Parmalat Regional CEO Craig Garvin says the capital expenditure will allow the company significantly to increase production in the state, including modern machinery for its flavoured-milk brands, which will lead to the company sourcing more milk from SA dairies.
“In addition, a new processor, which we’ve already installed, has allowed us to start exporting three fresh-milk brands from South Australia to China,” he said.
The $12 million investment comes on top of the $18 million Parmalat has already invested in the site since 2011.
The Clarence Gardens site employs 120 people and supports SA farmers.
