Golden Circle is one of Australia’s most recognised food companies and a leading supplier of quality fruit, vegetable & juice products to Australian families.
Golden Circle approached Wiley to construct a $17 million, 3,000m2 high-technology packaging and processing plant within the company’s 83,000m2 fruit and vegetable processing plant (the largest of its type in Australia).
Golden Circle sought improved production efficiency, reduced operating costs and increased competitiveness in domestic and international markets from the new facility.
The company required the facility to have a filling and processing capacity of 600 jars a minute, with flexibility to double this rate in future, and the capability to switch between product lines with minimal loss of time.
Wiley delivered a world-class packaging and processing plant, claimed to be the world’s most advanced facility of its type.
This facility supports Golden Circle’s commitment to plant modernisation, leading edge technology, product diversification, and domestic and international competitiveness.
The in-built flexibility and forward thinking design of the new plant also ensures the client can confidently meet and increase demand for their products into the future.
