Kettle Chips, Thins, Cheezels and CC’s could soon be manufactured in Orchard Hills under a proposal for a new facility which is currently on exhibition for public feedback.
A $222 million development proposal could see the Snack Brands Australia warehouse and distribution centre on Distribution Drive expanded to include food manufacturing on site.
Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Rob Stokes said the proposal would bring jobs and investment to Western Sydney.
“Chips may be cheap, however this proposal is anything but and represents a major opportunity for Western Sydney,” Mr Stokes said.
“The pandemic has shown that many of Sydney’s construction workers live in the south-west, so it’s important that we have as many jobs close to homes as possible.”
Member for Mulgoa Tanya Davies said the proposal would see some of the most iconic chip brands manufactured in Western Sydney.
“If approved, the Snack Brands Australia site will be a 24/7 operation and feature a new food manufacturing facility, an office, a wastewater treatment plant and create 497 construction jobs,” Mrs Davies said.
Members of the public are invited to have their say on the project’s Environmental Impact Statement by Wednesday 13 October 2021.
