Murray River Organics to open dried fruit processing facility

Tuesday, 13 May, 2014


Murray River Organics has commissioned a new state-of-the-art dried fruit processing facility which will create more than 40 new jobs in the NSW town of Mourquong, near Mildura. The plant has received funding from the NSW government’s Regional Industries Investment Fund.

“Our new processing facility is ideal in terms of location and proximity to our farms in both Victoria and NSW. The support we have received from both the Victorian and NSW governments has enabled our business to expand considerably in both domestic and international markets,” said Murray River Organics co-owner Erling Sorenson.

NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for Trade and Investment Andrew Stoner, and Member for Murray-Darling John Williams, welcomed the company’s investment, which is being supported with assistance from the NSW government’s Regional Industries Investment Fund.

“The company’s investment is great news for the region and for the state,” Williams said. “Murray River Organics is a major Australian success story and the NSW government is proud to be supporting the company’s expansion.”

The new processing facility is expected to be fully operational by June 2014 with the creation of at least an additional 40 full-time jobs throughout 2014 and 2015.
