Northern Victorian milk processor, ACM, has announced plans to build a multi-million dollar milk processing factory in the small town of Girgarre.
ACM chairman Michael Auld said the work should start on the site, next to the old Girgarre cheese factory, in December pending planning approval.
The factory, expected to be open next year, would initially employ 30 to 35 people and process 100 million litres of milk.
The announcement has been greeted with great enthusiasm by Girgarre residents who haven’t seen milk processing in the town for 38 years.
More details in the Country News next week.
