Member for Barker, Tony Pasin MP, has welcomed the Thomas Foods International announcement today hailing it a great success story for the company and the Murraylands region.

The company has announced it would rebuild in Murray Bridge at a new site, creating around 2000 jobs for the local region.

The Federal Budget handed down in April, included $7 million to assist in road and utilities infrastructure at the new Murray Bridge site.

“All levels of Government have worked together over the past 18 months to assist the company in getting to this point, culminating in the announcement today that they will be re-building in Murray Bridge,” Mr Pasin said.

“Today’s announcement is a great result for the local economy and the fabric of community in the Murraylands,” Mr Pasin said.
