Food manufacturing facility specialist Wiley has secured a contract for what will be NSW’s largest prepacked salad facility. OneHarvest engaged Wiley to create an early concept design for the multimillion-dollar project, which is located in Smeaton Grange, Camden.

Designed to supply supermarkets across the east coast, the facility will process a variety of salad leaves including spinach, lettuce, rocket and kale, as well as salad mixes and kits. These will predominantly be sold under supermarkets’ own-brand labels.

“[Wiley’s] unique expertise and track record of assisting us in delivering projects in Queensland and Victoria drove our decision to engage their services again for the design and construction of our first facility in New South Wales,” said OneHarvest Managing Director Sam Robson.

“This project will enable OneHarvest to service the largest market for prepackaged salads in the country with fresher product, owing to the facility being closer to the freeway network and our retail customers’ points of distribution.”

Wiley and OneHarvest first worked together on OneHarvest’s processing facility at Wacol in Brisbane. Earthworks, civil works and drainage are now underway on the new site. Completion is planned for October 2015.
