Council’s Planning Department recently issued a planning permit to Australasian Solutions Pty Ltd for the development of a milk product manufacturing facility on Depot Road, Camperdown.
Ms. Gstrein says the project will benefit the Shire and has the potential to integrate with Camperdown Dairy’s operations.
"Camperdown Dairy already has their factory under construction and ready to be commissioned so it's great to have Australasian Solutions down there, the planning permit has been issued," she said.
"It'll complement the other factory around it but also create 30-50 jobs."
Worth about $5 million, the Australasian Solutions development will be a specialised facility for processing powdered milk products including nutritional food, drink and supplement products.
It’s aseptic systems will use ultrahigh-temperature sterilisation before packaging products into sterilised and sealed containers.
The development has the potential to integrate with Camperdown Dairy’s operations and will increase the value-add and processing capacity of agricultural products in the Shire.
It will also support future master planning work for this industrial precinct and help leverage future funding and investment opportunities.
