More Jobs for Western Sydney with New Milk Plant

Friday December 20, 2013

Devondale milk will now come from Western Sydney after Murray Goulburn

Cooperative’s $65 million processing plant in Erskine Park was approved by the

Department of Planning and Infrastructure.

Member for Mulgoa Tanya Davies and Member for Smithfield Andrew Rohan

welcomed the news today saying the approval was a big win for Western

Sydney.

“This plant will create 45 on-going jobs in Western Sydney – that’s 45

paypackets being spent on local services and in local shops,” Tanya Davies

said.

“These are high quality manufacturing jobs and I’m pleased that Murray

Goulburn have chosen Western Sydney as the home of this new plant.

“It’s a big tick of confidence in Western Sydney and means more jobs closer to

home.” Tanya Davies said.

Mr Rohan said that the plant would be located in Erskine Park within the

Western Sydney Employment Area.

“The Western Sydney Employment Area is about making sure we have the

infrastructure in place to support new jobs in our region,” Mr Rohan said.

“This is just another example of big business seeing the potential of Western

Sydney and taking the chance to set up here – bringing jobs and investment.

“The prime location of Erskine Park on the corner of the M4 and M7 make it the

perfect location for companies like Murray Goulburn to set up.”

The plant will process 150 million litres of milk each year for both Devondale and

Coles brands.

The milk will be poured into one, two and three litre bottles and sold in

supermarkets around NSW.
