Greener pastures for the rolling hills of Gundagai
16 December 2016
We love new business ventures, especially ones that inject significant funds into regional areas and create new jobs, which is why we were ecstatic when Gundagai Meat Processors (GMP) asked us to coordinate their $30 million expansion announcement in partnership with the NSW Government to industry, suppliers, family and media.
GMP is a true rural success story. With almost 100 years in the meat industry, the family owned business has a smart business model that has seen the company grow to be one of the largest employers in the region.
Their recently announced $30M expansion will create 76 new jobs in Gundagai, increase processing capacity by 40% and have a number of flow on economic benefits including a $3 million boost to local spending during the construction phase and ongoing stimulus to the local economy, estimated to be in excess of $150 million per year.
Congratulations to Will Barton and the team at GMP – we can’t wait to see that first sod turned!
