Statement from Danny O’Brien MP on Murray Goulburn
“I am very relieved that both the Leongatha and Maffra plants of Murray Goulburn are unaffected by the company's footprint review.”
“This is fantastic news for Gippsland at a time when we’re already suffering significant job losses due to the actions of Andrews Labor Government with Hazelwood and Heyfield.
“Gippsland has been very good to Murray Goulburn over the years and these plants will hopefully have a strong future for many years ahead.”
“This is great news for those workers at the plant but also for suppliers who will also welcome the abolition of the Milk Supply Support Program.”
“I hope the changes announced today by Murray Goulburn will get the company back on track and see it return to its role as the key driver of Australia’s dairy industry which of course employs so many people in Gippsland and contributes enormously to our local economy.”
