Teys Australia has offered temporary employment to staff from Thomas Foods International’s Murray Bridge beef and lamb processing plant in South Australia, likely to be impacted by this week’s boning room fire.
Teys’ Naracoorte export beef processing plant is located some 260km southeast of the TFI Murray Bridge plant, heavily damaged by fire on Wednesday night.
Teys Australia this morning issued the following statement:
The thoughts of all at Teys Australia are with the staff and management of Thomas Foods following the devastating fire at the company’s Murray Bridge plant. We wish them a speedy recovery.
In the meantime we have made positions available at our Naracoorte plant to assist as many employees as we can during this difficult time.
The meat processing industry is based around production and this fire means that many Thomas Foods workers will not have regular income until the company’s plant is back in production.
Teys Australia stands beside our industry colleagues at Thomas Foods and is available to assist in any way we can. Employees interested in working at Teys until their plant resumes processing can contact Teys Australia on 08 7320 1428.
