Cavan based meat company Holco will spend $5 million upgrading its Darwin cold storage and distribution centre to better serve Northern Territory consumers. The demands from the mining sector and US defence personnel will justify the company’s multi-million dollar meat storage expansion.
This expansion will help Holco become the Northern Territoryâ€™s largest dedicated meat supplier, providing fresh beef, chicken, lamb, pork, seafood, kangaroo and crocodile to consumers throughout the territory.
This expansion will increase storage capacity by 400 per cent to 500 tonnes of meat. Itâ€™s expected this will position Holco well from further growth opportunities including export markets into South East Asia. Holco success nationally has seen them grow from $120 million turnover business five years ago to over $200 million.
This success build on their recent partnership with Thomas Foods.
