Positive future for dairy plants

Member for Hammond, Adrian Pederick, welcomed the news of United Dairy Power being purchased by Adelaide-based Beston Global Food Company (BGFC).

"It was a real shame to see United Dairy Power close its doors, but more so the loss of jobs that were incurred as a result," said Mr Pederick.

"This is the best news these troubled factories have received in four years.

"This is a fantastic outcome opening up a great opportunity for the Murraylands and I wish Dr Sexton AM and his company every success.

"The potential job and export growth will provide great economic growth for the region.

"I support BGFC in reaching their goal of supplying quality South Australian milk products to Asia.

"This investment will build a positive future for the dairy industry in the region and the State as a whole. I will eagerly follow this huge sign of confidence in the industry."
