AUSTRALIA: McCormick embarks to restructure
Herb and spice manufacturer McCormick Foods has announced its intention to centralise Australian operations in Victoria within the next six to nine months. The first steps will be taken when the company shifts production of its iconic Aeroplane Jelly brand from New South Wales to Victoria.
"The consolidation will result in the loss of 32 permanent and two casual positions in NSW. In Victoria, there will be an increase of approximately 15 positions," said managing director of McCormick Foods Australia Consumer, Graham Robertson.
The centralisation will see McCormick reduce from four sites in NSW and Victoria to only two, which will be located in Victoria. The company said that the move followed McCormick's global strategy of enhancing supply chain efficiencies through the consolidation and rationalisation of administration, distribution and manufacture.
