$250 million meat processing plant now under construction

Work has now officially commenced on the construction of the 45,000 m3 purpose-built Hilton Meat Processing and Distribution Facility in Brisbane. The facility will join the Asahi Beverages in LOGOS' 25-hectare Heathwood Logistics Estate. Asahi’s facility in the estate was completed in November 2017.

The combined investment from LOGOS and Hilton into the Heathwood Logistics Estate facility will be about $250 million, with Hilton investing significantly in automation and robotics technology to make it one of the most advanced processing facilities in the world.

Hansen Yuncken and TM Insight have been appointed builder and project manager respectively for the development, with works scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2019.

Hilton has committed to an initial 15-year lease term on the facility and will invest up to $115 million for plant and equipment for the warehouse. Hilton anticipates making its first deliveries to Woolworths stores in January 2020.

The Brisbane 2022 New World City Action Plan identified food and agribusiness as a key growth sector for the city, and this project demonstrates the city’s ability to attract significant commercial investment and will create 500 new jobs with the potential to generate $850 million to the city’s economy.
