Construction of Thomas Foods International’s new meat processing plant in South Australia has reached a new milestone. The first above-ground building works have begun with a centrepiece of the new flagship facility starting to take shape.

Work on the new Thomas Foods Murray Bridge plant is now well underway. The once-empty paddock located 10km outside of the town centre is undergoing a major transformation to what will become the new flagship facility of Australia’s largest 100% family owned meat processing company.
