Tip Top acquires old Kellogg’s site, creates 100 jobs

Over 100 new jobs will be created in Wyong Shire with Tip Top Bakeries announcing today the acquisition of the vacant 25,000sqm site at Charmhaven that was formerly owned by The Kellogg Company.

The household bread brand will invest millions in refurbishing the site to extend its existing bakery and distribution network, creating 100 jobs in Wyong Shire in the coming years.

Mayor Doug Eaton said it was great news to kick-start the year and welcomed Tip Top to the Shire.

“Having a well-known company like Tip Top make the business decision to invest millions of dollars on establishing a new facility here is a big tick of approval for the Shire. 

“It follows the recent set-up in the Shire of other multi-million dollar facilities by Cordina Chickens and Life Health Foods, and adds to our existing food manufacturing cluster, including major household names like Sanitarium and Mars Foods,” he said.

“Wyong Shire is bucking the national trend in attracting jobs growth in this industry and overall jobs growth for the Shire is at 2.6% – much higher than the national jobs growth rate,” he said.

“It shows again that Wyong Shire and the Central Coast are in a strategically perfect position for companies to produce and distribute products nationally, and take advantage of export markets where there are now more opportunities, thanks to new free trade agreements.

“Wyong Shire is on key transport corridors, close to major ports, equi-distant to Melbourne and Brisbane and still has very affordable sites compared to Sydney.

“Our economic development team has worked tirelessly with Tip Top’s parent company George Weston Foods to manage planning issues for the site and facilitate the deal.

Mayor Eaton said that Council is now in a position to offer incentives to companies where jobs will be created in the Shire.

“I recommend that anyone interested in pursuing this speak to our economic development team,” Mayor Eaton said.

“We will continue to focus on pursuing new jobs for Wyong Shire under our Economic Development Strategy, and hope to make several other announcements in the near future,” he said.

Andrew Cummings, Managing Director of Tip Top Bakeries said they were delighted to be adding to their bakery network at a time when many manufacturers were consolidating and closing sites.

“This exciting multi-million dollar investment will ensure we continue to produce and deliver the highest quality product, daily across Australia and are working to fulfill our ambition to become a leading bakery company in Australia and New Zealand,” Mr Cummings said.

“We investigated a number of sites in different locations and Wyong Shire came up on top with the best business case for our needs,” he said.

“The site will undergo significant refurbishment over the coming year.”

Tip Top Bakery has three other NSW-based bakery and distribution operations at Newcastle, Chullora and Ermington and 11 manufacturing plants across Australia.
