Saputo Inc. announced on Tuesday that it is undertaking further consolidation initiatives intended to enhance its operational efficiency and strengthen its competitiveness in Australia. 

The initiatives include the intention to permanently close its Maffra, Victoria, facility. Additionally, while the sites will remain operational, the company will streamline activities at its facilities located in Leongatha, Victoria, and Mil-Lel, South Australia. Many of the impacted production and packaging functions at these three facilities will be absorbed or integrated into the company’s other Australian facilities, increasing capacity utilisation and reducing costs. 

Approximately 75 employees will be impacted and where alternative roles are not available, these employees will be provided with severance and outplacement support.

The initiatives are expected to result in annual savings and benefits gradually, beginning in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023, and reaching approximately CDN$14 million by fiscal 2025.
