Thanks to Queensland Government support, Mungalli Creek Dairy constructed a new milk processing facility for its growing business. The new $3 million facility, set to create 24 new operational jobs, is a great example of the expanding agribusiness industry in Queensland.
The new facility includes an upgraded cheese-making room; a yoghurt, ricotta, quark and cream manufacturing room; cold rooms; bottling and labelling rooms; and a loading dock.
Mungalli Creek Dairy, at Millaa Millaa on the southern Atherton Tablelands, is one of two certified biodynamic dairy farms in Australia. With growing demand for biodynamic dairy products, the facility’s modern and efficient equipment will increase productivity and will allow the business to grow market share and become export compliant.
The family-owned business was established in 2000 by two brothers and has now expanded to become one of the largest employers in Millaa Millaa.
