SPC has declined to answer questions about the future of its Kyabram factory, more than a week after the company announced plans to sell the iconic IXL and Taylors brands.
The company declined to comment on the matter following a number of attempts by Country News to seek a response and an interview regarding a number of topics, including the future of the factory site, the future of the employees currently working at the site, the timeline of the sale and the amount of interest in the factory.
A spokesperson for the brands said the company did not wish to provide any further detail on what had already been reported in the public domain, citing the confidential process and the ‘‘considerable air time’’ already devoted to the sale, as the reasons behind its decision.
The spokesperson said there was ‘‘nothing more to add’’ other than the fact the company was seeking expressions of interest for the brands.
SPC has been producing IXL jam at the Kyabram factory since purchasing the brand in 2002.
