Murray Goulburn Co-operative has announced the sale of its Edith Creek facility in Tasmania to Australia’s subsidiary of Thai company Dutch Mill.
The Thai company is a private processor and marketer of milk and milk products throughout Asia and has already been buying dairy farms at Circular Head prior to purchasing the Edith Creek plant.
The transaction includes the Edith Creek land and all assets associated with the site but did not affect Murray Goulburn’s plans to close the site on November 30.
The completion of the sale transaction is expected in early 2018.
Dutch Mill delivers directly to fivemillion households per day.
