Tip Top opens QLD bakery after $9m upgrade

Tip Top Bakeries, owned by George Weston Foods, has completed a $9 million upgrade of its Springwood factory in Queensland.

Ahead of the facility's 30th anniversary next year, the bakery upgrade included improvements to the onsite warehouse and distribution centre, automated packaging and handling equipment; staff amenities including a lunchroom and changing facilities; an upgrade to the engineering workshop and a new wash bay and crate washer equipment.

Officially opened yesterday by Logan City Council Mayor Pam Parker, Tip Top employs 392 Springwood residents, more than 100 of whom have been with the factory for over 10 years.

The Springwood bakery produces 180,000 units per day across eight distribution lines, including some of GWF's leading brands, Tip Top The One, Sunblest, Golden, Abbott's and Gold Max.
