Hilton Food Group, the UK-based specialist meat packing company, and Woolworths, Australia’s largest retailer, are to proceed with plans to construct a new meat processing facility in Victoria, Australia.

The development is subject to government approvals and the negotiation and finalisation of construction and tenure agreements. It is proposed that Hilton’s joint venture company in Australia, Woolworths Meat Co operates and manages the new facility, with a current target for the commencement of production of 2015.

Woolworths Meat Co is 50% owned by a Hilton subsidiary, Hilton Foods Asia Pacific, and 50% owned by Woolworths.

Hilton Food Group was established in 1994 to set up and operate a beef and lamb central meat packing facility in Huntingdon, England. Since then Hilton has grown rapidly and in 2011 invested in a new facility in Denmark to supply Coop Danmark. In January 2013, HIlton announced a joint venture with Woolworths in Australia.
