Fonterra opens Italian-style cheese factory in Australia
Fonterra Australia has opened a $A6 million ricotta plant at its Stanhope site in northern Victoria for its Perfect Italiano brand.
Construction of the new plant began in late 2013 and includes large building works and the introduction of new ricotta machinery and equipment.
The project was supported by a $A250,000 grant from the Victorian governments.
Fonterra Australia managing director Judith Swales says, “This is another step toward achieving our goal of having the most competitive and sustainable dairy supply chain in Australia.”
