"Sales of these Tasmanian-made powders contributed to Fonterra Australia’s sustainable performance in ingredients in its annual results announced last week.
“The fats from the skim milk powder are made into butter, including Tasmania’s own Duck River Butter, and from Spreyton we send dairy products around Australia and across the world.”
Butter Plant Supervisor Adrian Wells has worked at the greenfield site since it began production in October 1997, and says that what really makes Spreyton such a special place to work is the team.
“There are a number of us who have been here since day one, and it really does feel like family,” said Adrian.
“We take pride in what we do, and work together as a team to maintain our reputation for high quality product.
“We have a proud history here in Tasmania and we look forward to the next twenty years – and many more after that!”
