Cracker boost for biscuit factory

Arnott’s new $22 million multi-pack centre is now in operation in Huntingwood.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Western Sydney Minister Stuart Ayres opened the world-class facility on Monday. 

“Arnott’s Biscuits is a much-loved Australian icon and has been operating in the country for more than 150 years. The company employs more than 2200 people, with 529 of them working at Huntingwood,” Ms Berejiklian said.

Arnott's is Australia's largest producer of biscuits and the second-largest snack food supplier.

AsiaPacific president Ümit Subasi said the new facility will support further product innovation and demonstrates Arnott’s commitment to manufacturing. 

“As result of the $22 million investment, we have moved our popular snack-pack products into cardboard outers. The new outers are better for the environment, protect the biscuits more effectively and sit more neatly in pantries.”
