Unilever’s $1.2M chai latte deal to create new jobs

Unilever Australia will invest $1.2 million to create a chai latte production line at its Tatura plant, which is expected to create 10 new jobs.

Regional and Rural Development Minister Jacinta Allan said the popular Lipton Chai Latte product would now be produced at Unilever’s Tatura site, meaning more jobs for regional Victoria.

“With strong support from the Brumby Labor Government, Unilever Australia will now produce the Lipton Chai Latte product at its Tatura plant with a $1.2 million investment,” she said.

“Unilever showed its commitment to regional Victoria and Tatura by choosing to manufacture the product at its Tatura site rather than importing the product from Indonesia.

She also said that the product will also be exported to Japan, as well as sold domestically.

As part of the project, Unilever’s Tatura plant will see the refurbishment of a mixing system and the installation of a powder conveying system for transporting product to filler; a stick pack filler for filling pouches at 400 per minute; a unit carton packer; and a series of conveyors to allow manual packing for shipping.
