A comprehensive food manufacturing cluster study undertaken by the City of Greater Bendigo identified the potential for strategically developed food manufacturing in Bendigo, through a dedicated food manufacturing precinct fostering an innovative food cluster.
The 30 hectare Wellsford Estate was then re-zoned as the precinct, capitalising on the concept's opportunities.
Six kilometres from the CBD and next to the Bendigo Airport, Wellsford Estate provides a secure location for long-term investment and business operation.
Surrounded by heavily vegetated land, the site is protected by:
- Establishment of only food manufacturing and compatible businesses
- Strong natural characteristics, including regional park on two sides, enhancing the attractiveness of firms established on-site
- Secure buffers that protect and encourage development of compatible businesses
Opportunities for food manufacturers and compatible businesses to be part of this exciting and innovative world-class industry initiative are available now.
