Kailis closes WA prawn factory

Cutting production costs and improving the overall supply chain processes is what Seafood company Kailis has done.

Kailis will close its Learmonth prawn processing plant in Western Australia’s north-west at the end of this year’s season, ABC Rural reported.

The closure means that the prawns will now be processed, cooked and frozen at sea on trawlers rather than on land at the factory.

Two jobs will be cut at the factory.

Operating costs at Learmonth have become too high over years and attempts by the company to bring them down have been unsuccessful to counter the change in market demand for domestic product.

The story was originally published on ABC rural.
