Global food company Heinz Watties is shifting production of sauces, beetroot and some canned meal products from three plants in Australia to its facilities in Hastings.
Production at its Girgarre plant in Victoria, a plant in Brisbane and a plant at Wagga Wagga in New South Wales will move to Hastings.
"While a small number of new positions will be created, the Hastings facilities have the infrastructure to absorb the additional volumes into current operations," chief operating officer Michael Gibson said.
The change, decided after a review of trans-Tasman manufacturing, will be implemented in the next 12 months.
The consolidation of manufacturing was designed to make the company more competitive, the company said.
