Factory up in the air

-

It’s three years since Rochester’s Murray Goulburn milk factory closed its doors and the 64-dollar question still remains, what’s its future?

No-one seems to know that answer and Saputo Dairy Australia, which acquired the factory from Murray Goulburn, has stated it is in the process of repurposin­g equipment and machinery from the closed factory with a view of undertakin­g a sale process of the site and factory on the edge of Rochester’s CBD.

But with a struggle between milk companies for more suppliers it is felt the site may not be sold to a rival milk processor, which may limit the field of prospectiv­e buyers.
