Eastern Southland BA5 – Mataura Valley Milk Tour
Last night members jumped on a bus and headed to McNab for a tour of Mataura Valley Milk.
The nutrition plant is a $240 million start-up business. The purpose-built nutrition plant, is one of the world’s most technologically advanced, employs 78 highly skilled staff, and started production in August 2018.
Thanks to Brent Robinson, Project and Engineering Manager who provided us with a guided site tour; Bernard May, General Manager who gave members a very interesting insight into the operation; and the wider leadership team who explained production as we watched the plant in operation from the viewing platform.
Lastly, special thanks to Sonia Morrison for putting this event together with us.
