Food manufacturer in administration

Hundreds of jobs are at risk after ready to eat food manufacturer Australian Convenience Foods Group went into administration.

Administrators Deloitte hope to sell Australian Convenience Foods Group, which makes sandwiches and microwave products for service stations and convenience stores, as a going concern.

Expressions of interest in the food supplier closed at 5pm (AEST) on Tuesday and Vaughan Strawbridge, administrator, said a sales deal could be made in the next week.

“We’ve got good interest.

“It will depend what is in the expression of interests,” Strawbridge said.

“We are hopeful we will be in a position to take on a few of those parties this week.”

He could not confirm if any of the 400 full-time, part-time and casual staff employed by the supplier would lose their jobs.

“We won’t know if there will be job losses until we conclude the sale of business process,” he said.

The food supplier went into voluntary administration on August 28, with Deloitte partners David Lombe, John Greig and Vaughan Strawbridge all appointed administrators.

It has seven fresh and frozen food operation sites in five cities, Victoria, NSW, Western Australia, South Australia, and Queensland.
