Arnott’s opens $22 million Sydney packaging facility
Arnott’s has opened a new $22 million packaging facility in Sydney’s western suburbs.
New South Wales Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, this week opened the centre located in Huntingwood which will employ 529 people.
“Arnott’s Biscuits is a much-loved Australian icon and has been operating in the country for more than 150 years,” Berejiklian said at the opening.
“The company employs more than 2,200 people, with 529 of them working at this world-class facility in Huntingwood.”
“Arnott’s major investment ensures some of its most iconic products will be made in Western Sydney well into the future,” she said.
Arnott’s commitment to Australian manufacturing
Campbell Arnott’s President of Asia Pacific, Ümit Subasi, said the factory demonstrates Arnott’s commitment to manufacturing in Australia.
“The new Multi-Pack Centre will support further innovation in the products we develop for Australian consumers,” Subasi said.
“As a result of the $22 million investment, we have moved our popular snack-pack products into cardboard outers. The new outers are better for the environment, protect the biscuits more effectively and sit more neatly in pantries.”
Arnott’s is owned by America’s Campbell Soup Company.
