BESTON PURE FOODS
Murray Bridge & Jervois
Beston Pure Foods is an arm of the ASX-listed Beston Global Food Company (BGFC). Established in 2014 the company has investments in the Dairy, Seafood, Meat and Health & Nutrition industries.
In July 2015, BGFC acquired the dairy processing facilities, formerly owned by United Dairy Products (UDP), at Murray Bridge and Jervois in South Australia. Beston’s aim is to restructure the operations and build a broader presence in the domestic and export marketplace including new product lines under its Beston Pure Foods label.
The Murray Bridge processing facility features an end-to-end cheddar manufacturing system, whey separation room and nano-filtration plant. The plant produces cheddar and artisan hard cheeses such as Romano and Pepato.
The Jervois processing plant features an advanced milk production system, cheese making facilities, butter maker with 3,000 kg/ hr capacity, a recently installed modern whey powder plant and various ancillary and packaging equipment.
The site will continue to produce high value protein ‘Lactoferrin’ - a key ingredient in infant formulae that is in short supply - from the state-of-the-art facility.
