Devondale to open $60m western Sydney processing plant
Devondale (Murray Goulburn Co-operative Co Ltd) has announced the location of it $60 million milk processing facility. The company recently confirmed that the new state-of-the-art facility will be built at Erskine Park in Sydney’s western suburbs.
The new site is a five-hectare plot within a 100-hectare industrial park built on a former quarry site.
Keith Mentiplay, Devondale General Manager Operations, said that work will begin on the new facility now that the site has been secured.
“There is just over one year to go before we are scheduled to begin production and we are well on track to becoming the nation’s most efficient producer of daily pasteurised milk,” Mentiplay said.
“Erskine Park was an obvious choice for us. As well as excellent land quality and infrastructure, this location also gives us easy access to the major milk supply regions in NSW, to the north, south and west of Sydney.”

The Penrith community will benefit from job opportunities as a result of the new facility, CSR Limited General Manager Property Andrew Mackenzie said.
Devondale is reportedly seeking to grow its milk supply in the Sydney region to support the new processing plant.
