Premium sauce and dressings company Birch & Waite recently pulled back the curtains on its new facility and world-leading processing technology.
Birch & Waite – which specialises in sauces, dressings, mayonnaise and desserts for foodservice, aged care and retail markets – says the plant is its platform to bring new food innovation to Australia. The company predicts this will drive over $20 million in growth by allowing it to tap into new niches.
The new $13.5 million factory in Revesby has some innovative new processing technology – including the Southern Hemisphere’s first commercial-sized shaking retort.
The Revesby facility's new thermal processing technology, plus other innovative features, were specifically scoped to capitalise on Australia’s future food trends.
The plant was built on the site of a former meat processing facility by RMR Process, it was commissioned in November last year, and it was opened by Craig Laundy, Assistant Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science in August.
