Murray Goulburn cuts 70 jobs
Murray Goulburn will cut 70 jobs across its Victorian factories.
The cuts will affect employees at the dairy producers Koroit, Cobram, Maffra and Leongatha factories. Voluntary redundancies will be offered for the majority of impacted roles.
General Manager Milk Supply and Field Services at Murray Goulburn, Craig McRae, said the decision was regrettable but necessary.
“These actions have been taken to ensure Murray Goulburn can deliver sustainable and competitive returns,” McRae.
Murray Goulburn stated that over the last 18-months it has managed a lower milk intake through a reduction in contractor workforce, changes to rosters and the use of annual leave and accumulated hours, but further action was required.
Murray Goulburn owns the Devondale and Liddells dairy brands.
